The Graduate Employees Union will be hosting our bargaining retreat for members who want to be active with GEU September 29 & 30 at Sleepy Hollow State Park. The goal of this retreat is build relationships, strategies, and skills to negotiate an awesome contract. Cabins and tent sites have been reserved. Food will be provided, as well as parking and gas reimbursement. The bulk of the agenda will happen Saturday, with some additional pieces on Sunday. Folks are welcome to come out Friday night to settle in and hang out. To sign up or for additional information email firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be hosting our first general membership meeting on Friday, October 12, 5:30-7:30pm at Allen Neighborhood Center. This is a really important meeting where members will be asked to give feedback on the issues we are planning to negotiate this spring when the contract expires. There will also be food and drinks. Families are welcome, and we can reimburse for child care needed to attend the meeting. Please RSVP here so we have a head count for food.
