SSPs for UPTE

We are the University of California student services professionals who dedicate our careers to helping students succeed in the classroom, in their careers, and in life. As we advocate for our students and help them to find solutions to conquer their challenges, we must also advocate for ourselves.

Let’s stand together as role models as we seek to unionize to improve our working conditions—security of employment, fair wages, affordable health care, and a pension that reflects the value of our years of service to UC’s mission. To accomplish this, we choose UPTE-CWA, the University Professional and Technical Employees, Communications Workers of America, a union with a great history of representing professionals at the University Of California.
