The April 22nd March for Science marks a historic day of action for researchers at UC, and across the country. At our meeting this month, we will be talking about how we can maintain the momentum from the March, build solidarity within the scientific community, and engage the public to help push back against anti-science policies. Bring your creative ideas!
We will be serving light refreshments.
At this week’s Campus Membership Meetings, we will be discussing Personal Time Off and the various kinds of leaves (Maternity, Parental, Personal, Medical, etc.) available to Postdocs, how to make use of those leaves when needed, as well as how paid sick days and holidays work under the contract.
We’ll also be talking about how our Union is fighting to save science funding in the 2018 budget as well as fair immigration policies, and our plans to meet with our Congress members on these issues.
Lunch will be provided!
Please join us for a Postdoc Union Happy Hour on Thursday, September 7 after the Fall Celebration! Come enjoy casual conversation and get to know your Postdoc colleagues. The first two pitchers are covered by our Union, UAW 5810. All Postdocs are welcome!
