UCSF Mission Bay Membership Meeting – The Value of Strong Membership @ Mission Hall, Room MH-2110
Jan 30 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

We would like to invite you to our first membership meeting of 2018, on January 30 at 12pm. During this meeting, we’ll kick off the new year with a discussion about our union values and how those values help us protect our rights and win together. During 2017, we accomplished huge contract enforcement victories, we planned and participated in global actions like the March for Science, and we used our Researcher Values petition to have important conversations with elected officials across the state. At this meeting we’ll make plans for the rest of the year to ensure that we continue to build momentum. It looks like 2018 will be full of challenges, and we would love to hear your comments and ideas about the priorities for our union.
