East TN


Welcome to the University of Tennessee Knoxville Chapter of UCW-CWA! The Chapter meets typically on the first Saturday of every month starting at 2:00pm at the CWA 3805 building located at 1415 Elm St (between Baxter & Oldham Ave, off 275). Are you interested in fighting outsourcing, standing up for programming, and helping get everyone at UT up to a living wage? Then come to a meeting to share your ideas!

There is a dynamic group of faculty and staff members growing the union at ETSU. They have waged a successful campaign to defeat custodial outsourcing, stood up about the need for a living wage and how far behind ETSU is in providing that, the need to remove the cap on adjunct pay and give them a real raise, the need for full-time faculty lines, and encouraging President Noland to opt out of the Governor's statewide facilities outsourcing contract (custodial, maintenance, and grounds), a contract in which he has gone on public record repeatedly saying that he is not interested in participating, for any current state employees.
