We are excited that a majority of postdoctoral researchers have signed up for our union and that we are moving towards filing for an election and winning a good contract at Columbia.

Please join hundreds of other postdoctoral researchers and take a minute to fill out the postdoc union bargaining survey.

Strong majority participation in the survey will also strengthen our union and enable us to have more power to negotiate a strong contract with the Columbia administration.

To celebrate the all the hard work we have put into building our union we are having a BBQ! Please let us know if you can make it.

The BBQ will be a good space to get to know one another in a different setting from our labs and offices, as well as talk about next steps in forming our union. We will be getting together this Sunday, July 1st, from 11-3pm, in Riverside Park at 10 Mile River Playground (W. 148th St. and Hudson River) Significant others and baby scientists are more than welcome, and one of the reasons we are organizing this outdoor event. Also feel free to bring food to share though we will have plenty of burgers and dogs.

All the best,

Members of Columbia Postdoctoral Workers (CPW-UAW)
