Last week, we took an exciting step forward by filing a petition with the National Labor Relations Board to certify our union. As we approach our official union election in the near future, we want to make sure all postdocs can hear about next steps, discuss why we are unionizing, ask questions and learn about how you can get involved.
So, we are holding open Town Halls this week where postdoctoral researchers can get answers to any questions you may have, like:
- Who is eligible to vote in our upcoming union election?
- How will the vote be held?
- How have postdocs at other universities benefited from unionizing?
- How is Columbia responding as we get closer to having our vote?
Morningside: Thursday, 8/16, Fairchild Building, room 1000 12:30-1:30pm
CUMC: Friday, 8/17, P&S, Todd Amphitheater room 16-405 1:00-2:00pm
We are excited to vote yes in our upcoming election to certify our union. After the election we want to move into bargaining as quickly as possible.
The more people that participate the more prepared we will be to negotiate a strong contract with the Columbia administration. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
