U-Mass Lowell members petition the legislature to fund union contracts

September 20, 2017

Higher Education professionals who are united in SEIU Local 888 at UMass Lowell have been bargaining with management in good faith since last March. After months of negotiations, Governor Baker has not authorized reasonable cost of living increases.

"Now that over 250 members have signed the petition, I'm confident that Administration and Finance will get the message."
