How to Join our union today!
"Whether it is state funding, whether it has to do with the conditions of our life on campus—the union is the place where these things are taken up."
Whether you’ve been faculty or staff for one day or forty years, now is the time to band together and be heard in the halls of power. Now is the time to join.
Together, we are united in providing a high-quality higher education, so that every student can attain their dreams. We represent all roles necessary to provide a rich, equitable education, from administrators to adjunct faculty, counselors to program coordinators.
"We've been fighting for better wages, safer working conditions, properly ventilated buildings—it's important for us to fight for those rights."
