We are very excited that our election on unionization  is less than one week away on October 2nd and 3rd. We have a historic opportunity to vote ‘yes’ and secure our ability to bargain a fair contract with the university administration and secure protections and improvements into a binding contract.

RSVP here for the postdoctoral researchers union town halls.

Please join us today and tomorrow at our town halls to hear about the process of unionization, details about our election and Q&A.

We will also be joined digitally by a unionized postdoc who was on the most recent bargaining committee at the University of California. UAW Local 5810 has negotiated a variety of improvements, has lead substantial advocacy efforts around protecting and expanding national science funding and protections for international researchers.

CUMC: 9/26 (Wednesday), 1-2pm
@ Irving Cancer Research Center Room 117

Morningside: 9/27 (Thursday), 1-2pm
@ Fairchild Room 800

The university has unfortunately decided to continue its efforts to try to convince us to vote ‘no’ in this election based on unsubstantiated concerns. Please feel free to review our FAQ for responses to many of the questions that have been generated by administration. Also, feel free to respond to this email and we will do our best to answer your questions in a timely manner.
