Tomorrow’s the big day!
JOIN US TOMORROW FOR OUR WORKERS’ RIGHTS FORUM
Graduate Workers’ Rights Forum
10AM | September 20 (Wednesday)
Broadway Presbyterian Church (114th and Broadway)
Lunch will be served after the event.
Come hear fellow graduate workers from Columbia, Yale, and other universities testify to a panel of Congressional and other leaders about the impact of our administrators’ continued refusal to respect democracy and bargain with our unions. The panel will include our Congressman Jerry Nadler and Congresswoman Grace Meng. Congresswoman Meng sits on the House Appropriations Committee and is a deciding member on federal science funding.
This will be our first opportunity of the school year to send a strong message to President Bollinger that Columbia needs to respect our choice and start bargaining! We hope to see as many graduate workers as possible in attendance to demonstrate our collective power and our commitment to negotiating our first union contract.
Please RSVP here.
