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.

Boston: We Will Be Paid!

We are thrilled to announce that after 18 months of fighting with the University—first over attempts to destroy key parts of our contract, and then over the University’s refusal to fully pay the negotiated increases—we will finally have our new contract fully implemented with the first set of salary increases paid on September 25th and all retroactive monies owed paid on October 23rd.
