AP Voices: Administrative professionals organizing for change
October 02, 2012
It’s October—Do you know where your raises are?
Are you getting a raise this month? Thousands of UC research and technical staff will, thanks to the contract they negotiated after joining UPTE.

Effective Oct. 1, salaries of these UPTE-represented staff will increase by 3%.

And in January, thousands of these employees will receive additional step increases that average 2%.  

What do these employees have that administrative professionals don’t? They formed a union—a legal entity that requires the University to sit down and bargain with them over hours, wages and working conditions.

Think that having a union contract doesn’t make a difference?

RX/TX vs. AP Salary Increases

When money is tight, front-line employees need a seat at the table. If Proposition 30 does not pass in November, the situation for employees and students will reach the critical stage.

Employees with union representation will be able to advocate for the students, academic programs, research, and public services that we support. For everyone else, UC will decide.

When employees join together to make our voices heard, we choose to make ourselves—and the mission of the University—a top priority. Without a union, we get what little may be left.
