Curious about who makes up the rest of the "we" in the union families of the State System? Following are the groups who bring our system to life, and the websites where you can find out more about them.

If you are curious about how your work may overlap or conflict with a colleague in another bargaining unit, you should contact your local campus representative or a member of the exec board. The PASSHE website also has all of the bargaining agreements for the above units. They are public documents, and you may find helpful information there as well.
