We’ve expanded to the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State!

United Campus Workers of Mississippi has established new chapters at the University of Southern Mississippi and Mississippi State University. As a wall-to-wall union, all university workers at Southern Miss and Mississippi State are encouraged to join us in advocating for a better workplace for all!

Mission Statement

United Campus Workers of Mississippi unites Mississippi’s diverse workforce—including part-time and full-time staff, faculty, and student laborers—to address the critical issues we all face. Our mission is to champion and defend the interests and well-being of all University labor, as well as to build and sustain social and economic justice in our workplaces and in our communities.

Know your rights!

Our constitutionally granted freedoms of speech and assembly protect our right to form and participate in any organization of our choosing, including a union. When we exercise these rights by organizing, we are building a movement to protect and expand those rights for future generations.

The UCW is a “wall-to-wall” union which means any individual who receives a paycheck from the state of Mississippi as a worker at a state college or university is eligible to join the UCW.
