Our Issues

UC student services professionals are organizing because we deserve fair pay, career development, job security, a secure retirement, and in support of public higher education. Check topics listed in the sidebar to the right.

Our wages have stagnated, our jobs have been threatened, our opportunities for advancement are often blocked, and our retirement and retiree healthcare benefits are under attack.

Our UPTE-CWA-represented coworkers receive regular negotiated pay increases, are routinely reclassified, and have preserved a better pension plan for themselves and future unionized employees.

We value our careers and the services we provide to UC students and the public, so we are standing together for ourselves and our constituents. We are organizing with UPTE-CWA, the union for professional employees at UC.

This is an exciting time for student services professionals. It’s going to take all of us to get a union, but the time is now. We can’t afford to wait any longer.
