Berkeley Membership Meeting – Postdoc Bargaining 2020 @ Latimer Hall, Room 425
Mar 28 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

With our current Postdoc union contract set to expire in just over a year, it’s time to start thinking about our next round of bargaining with UC. At this month’s membership meeting we’ll discuss the basics of bargaining, including what it means to collectively bargain and how the process works. Then we’ll generate ideas for what issues we should prioritize and how Postdocs can most effectively exercise our collective power to win a great contract in 2020!

At this meeting, we will also be voting for a representative to the elections committee. The UAW local 5810 elections committee consists of one elected representative from every campus. We will accept nominations at the meeting and hold an election if necessary.

Lunch will be provided!
