American's Owe Labor Unions

Shop Union Made

Write to Congress



Welcome to the home page of UAW Local 6888, representing over 300 Office Professionals at Central Michigan University.  CMU's Office Professionals first organized as an independent union in 1968.  In 1988, we joined the UAW.  The rest has been history in the making!  Click here to view a timeline of Local 6888.

Local 6888 is committed to securing economic and social justice for our members, as outlined in the principals of the International UAW. Our goal is to uphold the American standard of living according to the needs of our members and to strive for dignity in the workplace.

This site is dedicated to bringing accurate and up to the minute information to our membership. 

Our new scholarship application and cover sheet are now available for you to print. Go to the Governance page and click on Standing Committees. You will find the PDF documents under "Scholarship Committee". Or follow this link.

New Platoon

Our new platoon is a Patriot Missile Battery deployed to an undisclosed location in the Middle East. There are approximately 19 Soldiers, including 4 females, in our US Army Platoon. They are deployed from North Carolina to the Middle East until sometime in January 2015. Our Soldiers live 2-4 personnel in a room, have non-potable running water for bathing and 220V power. Bathrooms and showers are shared by all. There is a small PX Store available with a limited selection and a Chow Hall is available with designated hours, but it may not be open when they are able to eat.

Our Troop will be experiencing a lack of space due to camps being closed because of the draw down in Afghanistan. They will appreciate extra food items and supplies in their care packages. PX stores will be running out of supplies quicker because of increased personnel at the remaining camps that haven't been closed yet. Anything and everything that we can do will not go unnoticed and will be appreciated.

Requested Items:

Nuts, Sunflower Seeds, Granola/protein bars, Beef Jerky, Short slim jims, Cookies, Cup of noodles, Pop top canned foods, Flavored drink mix singles, Mouth care products, Deodorant, Shampoo, Bar/liquid body wash, Baby/bath wipes, Hand sanitizer (must be non-alcohol), Foot/body powder, Good quality disposable razors, Non-aerosol shaving cream, Feminine hygiene items, Nail clippers/files, Magazines, Books/puzzle books, Playing cards, Alkaline batteries (all sizes),Sports games or balls, Baseball gloves, Assorted greeting cards (blank), Frisbees, Retractable pens, Fly swatters, Sticky fly paper Insect repellent w/DEET Sunscreen w/high SPF

New OP Titles

Local 6888ís membership and executive board members were in agreement that the terms "secretary" and "clerk" were archaic and did not adequately describe the work performed by office professionals. In addition, the work performed by a vast majority of office professionals incorporates both secretarial and clerical duties. As a result, a committee was formed to look at office professional titles and job descriptions. The committee has finalized their study and the membership has approved their recommendations. While these new titles are not included in our current contract, the University has told Local 6888 leadership that we may use these titles in our written and electronic correspondence, and may refer to our positions using these titles. Click on the links below to view the new titles and job descriptions.
