Middle TN


We are the union at MTSU, the voice for the hundreds of us who make the university run everyday but all too often are not given the say-so we deserve when it comes to decision making. We know that administrators and the politicians in Nashville have a lot of power, and by joining together into a strong organization with our coworkers we have power too. 

We are currently working to stop outsourcing, fight for graduate worker healthcare, and stop the influence of the billionaire Koch Brothers, who have just gifted $3.5 million dollars to establish an ideological research center at MTSU.

Welcome to the Tennessee State University page of United Campus Workers!  We are in the beginning stages of building the union at TSU.


Over the past few years, we have grown to be over 50 faculty and staff at APSU who care about issues like APSU's over reliance and low pay of adjunct faculty,  implementation of merit pay systems, and lack of transparency and communication from the administration.

Tennessee Tech 

At TTU, we are fighting outsourcing attempts, threats to faculty tenure and academic freedom, and merit pay systems that disproportionately benefit those already making the most. Join our union and join these fights.
