If you drive to work, are you prepared to pay $15 a day to park?
Were you asked when the administration took out a garage construction loan in your name?
Were you asked before the administration released a “bold new plan” to fund the substructure project with your parking fees?
Even if you don’t drive to work, do you believe our students can afford to pay $15 a day to park?
It has become clear that the UMass Boston administration, backed by the UMass Board of Trustees, sees employees and students as little more than a source of revenue. But serving students—not fleecing them—is our mission, and if UMass Boston works, it is only because we employees do.
A coalition of campus unions will have its first parking bargaining session on THIS AFTERNOON: please join the bargaining team for half an hour to wish us well and let management know you are watching.
UMass Boston has lost its way; let’s find it together.
See you today at 2:30 pm outside the union office!
And if you can’t join us, call Chancellor Mills’ office at 617-287-6800 any time today. Let him know how you feel about the parking fee increase and what impact it will have on you.
