MTA Summer Conference
July 31-August 3
UMass Amherst


Plan to be in-person at MTA’s Summer Conference 2022, July 31 through August 3 at UMass Amherst! We will be offering program tracks focused on union leadership, advocacy, bargaining and political organizing. We’ve all been missing opportunities to socialize, so expect lots of special events to meet and collaborate with other members.

In 2022, the MTA is providing full funding for members who attend the following programs:
