Do you support flat dollar raises for campus workers?

STAND UP FOR FAIRNESS FOR CAMPUS WORKERS! We need flat dollar raises and equal pay for equal work, not percentage raises that benefit the people who already make the most. The new state budget includes a 2.5% raise for all higher education workers, allocating millions of community tax dollars to giving raises to the highest paid among us. Join us in calling for a fair distribution. Flat dollar raises are fair raises!

Would you distribute POSTCARDS to your coworkers that let President Joe DiPietro and Chancellor John Morgan know you support flat dollar raises? Contact Ash, Tom, or Cassie today!

General Assembly Passes Budget, Pay Raise

Lawmakers in the General Assembly passed our state budget yesterday which included a 2.5% pay raise for all state workers. Now the budget heads to the Governor's desk for him to sign or veto. At this point in time, the two system heads, Dr. Joe DiPietro, President of the University of Tennessee and Chancellor John Morgan of the Tennessee Board of Regents, need to hear from you: This raise needs to be distributed as an equal dollar raise in order to benefit those who need it the most.
