I support the staff union because staff can be more connected to the University community if they have a voice in the decisions that are made, can give feedback for improvement, and can confidently share thoughts of concern in order to create a better working environment for all. With my extensive background in working with unions, I have seen the impact they can have where staff and administration can collaborate and come to decisions that positively benefit all stakeholders. With a staff union, I believe people will be able to sit at the table and be even more committed to creating an environment where everyone benefits from the decisions being made.

I support the staff union because I’ve been a staff member at Pitt for 27 years, and I believe that we need greater transparency about salaries, opportunities for advancement, and a voice in decision-making that affects us. Joining together as a union will help us to accomplish this.
