Action 3/24 - Public College Should Not be a Debt Sentence!

3/14/2022

In past years, many UMB staff, faculty and students have enjoyed visiting the State House on the annual Spring Advocacy Day organized by PHENOM (Public Higher Ed Network of Massachusetts). PHENOM needs our help this year to move a critical piece of legislation reported out of committee by April 4th. S829/H1339, An Act to Guarantee Debt-Free Public Higher Education,” would guarantee every Massachusetts resident has a right to a public higher education free of tuition, fees, and student debt and covers all MA public higher ed institutions, including UMB.

Pay raises and Construction Update

3/11/2022

Dear FSU Member, 

We are providing you with a couple of updates. 

Pay Raises:  Our pay raise funding was included in Governor Baker’s February 18th Supplemental Budget request. The request is before the state legislature for debate (not for our funding but executive branch initiatives). Hopefully the legislature will vote shortly, the governor will sign and then our Human Resources can begin the process of member payment.
