The union of technical and professional employees at the University of California. Over 16,000 UC employees are covered by UPTE-CWA contracts.

UPTE was founded in 1990 by a group of employees who believed that UC workers would benefit from a union to safeguard and expand our rights. In 1993, UPTE members voted to affiliate with the Communications Workers of America, a 700,000-member union in the AFL-CIO, to better represent our members.

In 1994, UCís 4,000 technical employees voted for UPTE representation. In 1996, 3,700 research professionals joined them, and in 1997, 2,000 health care professionals followed suit. There are now UPTE locals at all UC campuses, labs and medical centers.
