Welcome to the SHARE UMMS blog!

Welcome to the new online home of the SHARE union for UMMS employees! We will use our new website to post items of interest to SHARE members at UMass Medical School, including:
  • Current SHARE and UMass Medical School news
  • The SHARE-UMMS Contract, and updates about Contract Negotiations
  • Useful tidbits about our Contract, and how it can help you
  • Advice on surviving and thriving at UMass Medical School
  • Links to our sister organizations
  • Online resources to help you at work and at home
Of course, nothing beats person-to-person communication and a real-live chinwag, but we hope the new website will provide another way to stay up-to-date, and better connect you to the SHARE community. More soon . . .
