|Even as workloads increase, wages and benefits lag for administrative professionals at UC -- hurting the University’s ability to attract the best people and serve its mission.
But this doesn't have to continue.
University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE) has bargained a contract that increases the pay for UC's research and technical employees up to 15 percent over three years.
UPTE representation has made a real difference for them, and it can do the same for us.
It's no secret that the University of California is pressed for money. But budgets aren't only about numbers -- they're also about priorities. Non-union workers have no say about how cuts are implemented, making us an easy target during tough times.
This crisis has been building a long time, and we must work together to create long-term solutions. By partnering with the University, we can fight for ballot initiatives and legislation to help secure a stable revenue stream that adequately funds public education.
The time to rebuild is now.
