UPTE’s annual statewide convention will be held in Costa Mesa, California, at the Hilton Orange County Costa Mesa, from Saturday, March 30th, 2019 (11 AM) through Sunday, March 31st, 2019 (5 PM).
- Completing the RX, TX and HX contract bargaining process.
- Mobilizing against UC’s attempts to weaken our Retirement Security by reducing our Pension and Retiree Health benefits.
- Mobilizing to grow and protect our union in a post fair share environment.
All members in good standing are eligible to serve as convention delegates and alternates. If you want to be a delegate, you should run for this position with the intention of attending the convention for all three days: Please note that Friday, March 29, 2019 is a paid holiday (Cesar Chavez Day) that will facilitate travel to the Convention site to accommodate the 8 AM start time on Saturday, 03/30/19, and will not require an attendee to take time off from work, paid or otherwise. The union will reimburse hotel expense, mileage, and other reasonable travel expenses.
Please remember that UPTE is a member-run, member-driven union, organized and mobilized from the bottom up, not the top-down. Your engagement as a member is essential to our collective and individual success. Please consider being a delegate to the annual convention as a cornerstone to our grassroots effort.
Yours in Solidarity – The Executive Board of UPTE Local 3
