Videoconference meeting rooms: 133 Wishcamper (Portland) and 301 Bailey (Gorham).
ACSUM and USM Administration have been in discussions on how best to handle the potential reassignments of some of the administrative assistants in these colleges. We have reached agreement on how this process will work and ACSUM will be holding an informational session to explain the agreement as well as answer any questions you may have.This meeting will be open to ALL the administrative assistants impacted by these changes, not just union members, so even if you are not a union member we encourage you to attend.
