At this month’s Campus Membership Meeting we will discuss career development resources: how to take advantage of them, rights under our contract and how these rights can be improved upon. Come join us!
Come join your colleagues for this month’s Postdoc Union social at the next Farmer’s market picnic. We will enjoy each other’s company, the music, and all the other things the picnic has to offer. Families and friends are of course welcome, and it is also a great opportunity to meet new people!
We will meet in the middle of the park towards B street, close to the horses.
I am pleased to announce that the President of the UAW5810, Anke Schennink, will be in our meeting to chat with UCM postdocs and get to know more about our community in the Central Valley region. I am also excited to announce the continuation of our career development event now named Pitch 90. This is also scheduled for July 28 (noon-1pm). This is an event created by UCM Postdocs (special thanks to Yu, Nate, and Jing). This is a great opportunity for us to improve our oral and improvisation skills.
At this month’s campus membership meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to ask all of your questions about retirement plan options for Postdocs, including the Defined Contribution Plan (DCP). We’ll be joined by a retirement planner from Fidelity Investments, who can provide expert advice. We will also update you on the status of our statewide grievance over UC’s proposal to increase Postdoc retirement plan fees. Hope to see you there!
