The Higher Education Department represents more than 6,000 AFSCME members working at 27 public university, state and community college campuses in Massachusetts. Working in a number of job titles ranging from campus police officers to groundskeepers, AFSCME members make up the backbone of one of the most and respected and effective public higher education systems in the world. Department staff members work with Local leadership to engage in mid-term and successor collective bargaining, and handle the preparation and processing of unfair labor practice charges, individual and class appeals, and grievances. They also provide advice and guidance to local leadership and members as to their contractual and legal rights and obligations, and work with the office's administrator to assure the timely and effective exchange of information between the Council and Local leadership.
