Elected Leadership and Staff

IB ImageIn United Campus Workers the members run this union. We're committed to the principles we are organizing around, which is why all elected leaders on our Local's Executive Board are current higher education employees at TBR and UT institutions. These Officers and E-Board members volunteer their personal time and resources, giving their evenings, weekends, and personal leave time to conduct union business.
