The UPTE Systemwide Executive Board approved a new organizing program in September 2021. The purpose of this program is to increase UPTE’s power and democracy in measurable ways, with goals and methods to guide activity in each of our chapters. Power and democracy are directly related: more members are only going to make a greater commitment to working together as a Union if they are engaged, their concerns and desires are addressed, and they are made part of the plan for addressing those concerns. We are seeking members interested in becoming workplace representatives or unit representatives. Our unit representatives will be excused from work regularly to attend sessions and work on important projects for their assigned areas. Please contact email@example.com if you have questions or if you are interested.
