Union Officers & Staff

UPM’s governing body consists of nine members and is called the Executive Council.  
Six members are full time faculty members, elected by the full time members.  Likewise, two members are part time members and are elected by part time members.  One faculty member runs “at large” and is elected by the entire membership.   
Our office support is provided by two part time secretaries.   There are also a number of working committees made up of our officers and members at large.  Some of these jobs are done voluntarily and some of them are paid.
