United Campus Workers

United Campus Workers is building a powerful voice for higher education employees across the South. We are united in a wall-to-wall union:  the staff, faculty, graduate and undergraduate workers that make our colleges and universities work. By coming together, taking coordinated action, and standing up for one another, we've won major victories for ourselves, our coworkers, and our communities.

UCW has locals and chapters in Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, South Carolina, and Kentucky. Join us in organizing a chapter of UCW on your campus!

Graduate workers at University System of Georgia (USG) schools will no longer have to pay an additional fee to work and study.

The United Campus Workers of South Carolina recently held their first Lobby Day.

THE DRIVE TO PERSUADE President Joe Biden to cancel student debt took a major hit last week when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stunned Congress with a surprise statement in opposition.

Now more than ever, our UNITY is our strength. Let’s demonstrate our unity by coming together on March 31st (equal pay day!) to demand equity and fairness on our campuses in the wake of COVID-19 and beyond.
Our goal is to ensure campuses provide the most comprehensive safety and prevention measures, and prioritize fairness and equity for campus employees via open and free communication without fear of reprisal or negative impacts on pay, paid leave or continued employment.
