Come out to Elect our Elections Officers: Attend the General Membership Meeting – January 20th (3–6pm)

We are hosting a General Membership Meeting via Zoom on January 29th from 3pm to 6pm! All members are encouraged to attend.

We have seven donations on the agenda to support publications that cover issues related to workers’ rights and activist movements, including The Hoser, Midnight Sun, and THE GRIND. Independent Jewish Voices, the Iranian Graduate Students’ Association, and the Palestinian Youth Movement are also seeking donations to do important work.

We’ll be electing our Elections Officers – an important position that oversees the elections of our Bargaining Team (which is happening this February) and the Executive Committee (happening this March). Without our Elections Officers, these posts cannot be filled.

We’ll also be discussing upcoming conferences members may want to attend, including CUPE’s women’s conference, and we’ll be voting on bylaw amendments related to the removal of departmental stewards and committee members.

Please register in advance for this meeting here.
