Action needed on higher ed contracts

Time is of the essence for supporting contract funding for MTA’s higher education members.

Please click here to e-mail your legislators, UMass President Robert Caret, Commissioner of Higher Education Richard Freeland and Governor Deval Patrick and ask them to stop engaging in political brinkmanship and give members their hard-won raises.

These raises are for MTA members at UMass Lowell and the state universities. Although the raises were mutually agreed upon, members have yet to see them in their paychecks.

This issue can be resolved if the House and Senate both approve a supplemental budget with the required funding. This budget is expected to be before the Legislature on Thursday, October 16. Please send your message now!
