SGMM on Summer Funding and Mobilization

Silhouettes march with banners and flags. SGMM on Summer Funding and Mobilization
Tuesday, March 28
3:30 pm – 5:30 pm
280A York Lanes

Join us for a Special General Membership Meeting on the topic of summer funding and how we can effectively mobilize around the damage done by the fellowship funding model!

As you may know, the fellowship model has resulted in the loss of almost 700 jobs out of Unit 3. However, it has also shuffled our guaranteed summer funding into the Fall and Winter semesters, leaving members of Unit 1 in dire financial straits for the summer months. Some potential solutions are in the works, but the membership needs to discuss and choose the direction of our actions against this erosion of our collective agreements.

SGMMs can only be called to address specific issues. Some of the ways in which the topic of this meeting can be addressed are:

  • Recap on what the fellowship model is and how it affects summer funding.
  • Update on what has been done so far.
  • Discussion of what should be done in future.

Snacks and tokens provided!
