The University of Massachusetts Amherst has launched an initiative aimed at increasing understanding of the problem of workplace bullying, reducing its occurrence, and clarifying the responsibility of supervisors for ensuring a productive workplace in which all can contribute to their maximum potential.

Understanding Union Contracts

Workshop Date: 
Thursday 1/19/17
Time: 
9:00am - Noon

More than 90 percent of UMass Amherst employees, including many supervisors, work under union contracts. We will focus on the basic structure of a collective-bargaining agreement, develop a working knowledge of non-faculty contracts (PSU/MTA, AFSCME and USA/MTA), and applying agreements to situations from your workplace.
