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

Campaign for the Winter Months
We are collecting items to help our soldiers in the cold weather months. Hand and
foot warmers, warm dark colored boot socks, instant soups, and hot drink
mixes will be greatly appreciated by our platoon members.
Over-the-counter cold meds might also be appreciated.
There are approximately
40 male Soldiers in our US Army Platoon. They are deployed from Texas
to Afghanistan until sometime in October 2014. Our Soldiers live in 8-10
man tents, use bottled water and have 110V generated power. There is a
very small PX Store with a limited supply and a Chow Hall is available
with designated hours, but unfortunately it may not be open when they
are able to eat. Our Platoon does Force Protection, Quick Reaction
Force, and Combat Patrols (Infantry). Please know the support and
letters you send are worth their weight in gold!

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.

- an alliance formed by the joining of many people for a common purpose.
