What's New:
  • UPTE and UC will be bargaining the HX contract here at UCLA on March 22 and 23. But UC's idea of a cost of living increase is 2%. Federal stats show Southern California inflation and wages actually are increasing 3%. Read about UC's attempt to shortchange us here. The facts on inflation are at The Bureau of Labor Statistics and The Daily Breeze. For more information and events and union actions, check this and our calendar page often. 
  • UPTE will be lobbying at the State Capitol in Sacramento next month:

    UPTE will join our parent union, the Communication Workers of America (CWA), at the California Federation of Labor joint lobbying day on MARCH 20. More information is available at http://calaborfed.org/events/2018-joint-legislative-conference/

    To participate in either lobbying day, please contact Legislative & Political Director Amy Hines at ahines@upte-cwa.org. Participants are eligible for travel reimbursement from UPTE UCLA.
  • Yet another upcoming conference is the CWA/United Steelworkers Joint Health & Safety Conference on March 26-30 in Pittsburgh. UPTE-CWA will reimburse all travel expenses for up to 2 members to attend.
