The TX Unit, which is exclusively represented by the University Professional and Technical Employees union (UPTE), is the bargaining unit that includes approximately 3,400 technical support professionals who provide a wide range of technical support services for instruction, research and clinical care at the University.
The current Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the University and UPTE regarding the TX unit will govern the terms and conditions of your employment and can be seen online at https://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/labor/bargaining-units/tx/index.html.

They include: i) Transitioning employees paid on open salary ranges to step-based salary scales; ii) The effective date that union dues/agency fee payments will begin being deducted from your pay check; and iii) Certain terms pertaining to your retirement benefits.
