Members of three unions representing faculty and staff on the University of Massachusetts Boston campus will be standing in solidarity with students and asking the UMass Board of Trustees at its meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 16, to roll back recently approved increases in student fees. At UMass Boston, those fees were boosted 8 percent for graduate students and 6 percent for undergraduates.
