Your union, AFSCME Local 1072 is bargaining on a new contract that affects all aspects of your job – including wages, benefits, leave time and workers’ rights. Our union contract has specific rules that the university has to follow to make sure that we are treated with dignity and respect, and that we can work safely.
The administration wants to take away vital services, benefits and resources including removal of the parking fee cap, changes to the professional development days and the abolishment of critical care leave. Those are just a few of their detrimental contract proposals! We’re fighting back.
In preparation for bargaining, we issued a survey to the campus community earlier this year. The feedback we received was tremendous! We will be releasing what management is proposing for employees of University of Maryland and our counter-proposals for your review.
Let’s come together and make our contract stronger!
