Davis Membership Meeting – Postdoc Bargaining 2020 @ GBSF (The Genome and Bioscience Research Facility), Room 2202
Mar 27 @ 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!
