UPTE-UCM Local 10

UPTE-UCM Local 10 is the University Professional & Technical Employees at UC Merced. Our organization is a democratic, member-run union made up entirely of UC employees. Decisions are made by UPTE members and their elected representatives. Our success is due to the high level of activism among our members. We invite you to join us.

UPTE was founded in 1990 by a group of employees who believed that UC workers would benefit by having a union to safeguard and expand our rights in the workplace. There are UPTE locals at all campuses and medical centers of the University of California. In 1993, UPTE members voted to affiliate with the Communications Workers of America (CWA), a 700,000 member union in the AFL-CIO, in order to better organize and represent UC workers.
