AP Voices: Administrative professionals organizing for change
April 29, 2013
We all deserve a fair pay increase
Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau announced that Berkeley campus employees who are not covered by union contracts would receive 2% pay increases effective March 1, 2013.  Years of non-existent and inadequate pay raises have left university staff without union contracts woefully under market-value.

Sign the petition asking UC president Yudof and all campus chancellors to do the right thing, follow Chancellor Birgeneau’s lead, and give unrepresented staff a fair pay increase. Ask your co-workers to sign, too.

If you haven’t yet signed an “authorization card” supporting a union for administrative professional employees, please do so now.

A union is as strong as its membership. Become a voluntary member of UPTE (even without a union contract). Dues are $22/month, payable by payroll deduction. Learn about the benefits of membership.
