On the eve of their historic vote for union recognition, American Federation of Teachers President and Cornell University alumna Randi Weingarten will rally Saturday with Cornell graduate workers to get out the vote. Weingarten will speak at the CGSU event at Hasbrouck Community Center, highlighting the voices of grad employees with families, and the challenges faced by international grads, two days before voting begins.
We invite you to join us for an open Q&A session before our upcoming union recogniation election. A panel of CGSU members will answer questions from the audience in addition to questions submitted in advance.
Please send advance questions to us before noon on March 24 at: email@example.com
We look forward to providing our best answers to your questions in an open format. Following the Q&A, we'll move to the BRB for TGIF and fellow Grad Workers will be available to answer questions in this informal setting from 5:00 - 7:00pm. Hope to see you!
The steering committee is the guiding elected body of CGSU. Their meetings are open to all members.
On Monday, March 6th, CGSU notified Cornell of our intent to file for a recognition election! A majority of grads have shown their support and are ready to vote yes! Join us this Wednesday, when we will gather to show the administration the strength and enthusiasm of our union.
We'll kick things off with live music and some brief remarks before marching to Day Hall where we will deliver a giant 50 foot banner with over 1,200 petition signatures in support of CGSU. Please RSVP on our Facebook event so we know that you’re coming!
You're invited to our first General Assembly meeting of the semester!
