Legislative & Political Action Committee

Our LPAC coordinates our legislative and political efforts to support legislation and candidates that advance living wages, public education, and workers rights. We have statewide conference calls twice per month.

Chair: Tom Anderson, UTK,

CIvil Rights and Equity Committee

Join UCW's Civil Rights and Equity Committee! We are working to broaden and deepen the union's work for racial justice and civil rights on our campuses. This year our focus is on the racial wage gap, and fighting for a fair and equitable wage for ALL workers. We have a statewide call once per month.

Contact Eli Stanfield, to join.

Gender Equity Committee

The GEC's mission is to advance workplace equity and justice for all genders in higher education. Through education, organizing, and legislation we aim to shape campus cultures and policies so that employees have a voice and decision-making power around issues like pay equity, harassment, and job security. We have statewide conference calls twice per month. Contact our chairs to join!
