Letter to the Boston Globe from UMB Union Presidents: Real Reasons for the UMB Budget Crisis

Presidents of four of unions at UMB, including FSU President Marlene Kim, signed a letter in response to UMB claims that unionized employee raises were driving the UMB budget crisis. That letter was published in the Boston Globe (see letter here). 

Urgent message to your legislator or your health care cost share will increase

Dear Colleague,

I hope you are having a great summer.  Two urgent issues require your attention:

1. Governor Charlie Baker has vetoed $412 million from the fiscal 2017 budget passed by the Legislature. These vetoes have serious repercussions for MTA members, including a potential increase in your health care cost share from 20% to 25% (if you are now paying 20%, your share will increase to 25%).  Other educational funding has been cut as well for non-faculty members.
