The benefits and protections important to Postdocs are under attack because of a series of court decisions and policy changes, among which is the billionaire-funded Janus v AFSCME case against public-sector unions. Please join your fellow Postdocs at this month’s membership meeting to discuss how we can fight to protect our right to stand together and advocate for ourselves and our profession.

Food will be provided!

Sincerely,

Rosie Gradoville, Unit Chair
