AP Voices: Administrative professionals organizing for change
February 19, 2015
Does a union contract really make a difference?

More than 12,000 UC employees already benefit from membership in University Professional and Technical Employees (UPTE), a member-run union for higher education professionals.

The UPTE Difference

Pay increases of 24% over last six years 6% over last six years
Step increases for longevity No step increases
Equal pension for all Two-tier pension
Limits on health benefit cost increases No limit to increases
Protection against furloughs & pay cuts UC can impose furloughs & pay cuts unilaterally
Union representation ending in binding
arbitration to resolve work place problems
Represent yourself in the personnel policies (PPSM) process or hire an attorney
Open quote If I had been represented by UPTE, my pay raises would
have covered my dues tenfold over the last six years!
