The MSP Connection
The MSP is your union. As a member-driven organization, the MSP works with faculty and librarians at UMass Amherst to make sure we have the resources we need to succeed in our research, teaching, and service. Together with our parent organization, the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA), we are the most powerful advocate in the state for UMass, our students, and public higher education. In addition to bargaining, problem solving, and advocacy, the MSP brings together faculty and librarians for orientations, training, workshops, and social activities.
Families and friends are welcome at all events! Please RSVP to MSP@umass.edu to reserve tickets so that we can sit together as a group.
