Urge Your Legislators to Fund Higher Education Contracts!
Take action to fund higher education contracts!
Section 156 of the State Senate's Economic Development bill includes language needed to validate collective bargaining agreements under Chapter 150E for the Massachusetts Society of Professors at UMass Amherst and the Classified Staff Union at UMass Boston. Unfortunately, the deliberations for this bill have been delayed and it is unclear whether the legislation will move. We need to urge our legislators to finalize these contracts by moving the language in Section 156 to the Governor's desk immediately.
