UMB Union Reps Speak Out Against Proposed Take-Backs at BOT Meeting

On Wednesday, September 17th, a delegation of union members from across the UMass campuses attended the Board of Trustees meeting at UMass Lowell to protest the give-backs at bargaining.  We were asking that the Trustees tell the President and universities to “take back the take-backs.”  For the FSU, this means limiting sick leave accrual to 120 days.
