The work that we do is part of the reason why the University of California is a world renown institution. We deserve a say in our career and being in a union allows us to do so. Collectively, we are able to bargain over our wages, benefits, retirement, and working conditions. The bigger our union the stronger our voice.

Our union is strong because we also advocate for our issues in the capitol. We support political candidates who fight for working people and legislation that creates equity for all Californians. Our PEOPLE program funds this work through voluntary contributions from members.
One of the many reasons we’ve been able to win better contracts year after year has been because of our growing presence in the Capitol. Through PEOPLE we’re able to meet with Politicians, share our stories, and gain allies that join us in keeping UC accountable to the workers, students, and patients who make UC run!"
