This is a reminder of our virtual membership meeting this Thursday November 19 at 6:30pm. After hearing report-backs on progress with setting up our Local Union, we will discuss and vote on a set of proposed jurisdictions for our Stewards. You can find the proposal here – please feel free to review it in preparation for the meeting.
To conduct the vote and discussion in an orderly manner, we will follow the parliamentary procedure used in most Local Unions and community organization meetings outlined in Robert’s Rules of Order. Here is a cheat sheet with the most commonly used rules.
If the jurisdictions are approved by the membership the period of nomination and election for our Stewards will begin. Stewards will fulfill a crucial role by organizing and engaging co-workers, assisting with grievances, and ensuring all Postdocs and ARSs are informed about the activities of our union. If you want to learn more about the role of Stewards and participate in this important discussion RSVP for the membership meeting here.
