11/28 – CGSU Public Information Session @ 8 pm @The Big Red Barn
The evening will begin with a brief presentation on CGSU and the graduate union movement, and then the floor will open to discussion. A five- to six-person panel of Cornell graduate students and special guests will start off the conversation, but discussion will be guided by the questions and comments of all comers.
Our special guests are John Ware (PhD candidate in Physics), the current president of University of Michigan’s Graduate Employee Organization (GEO), and Professor Risa Lieberwitz, a labor law specialist in Cornell’s Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) school. CGSU will provide beer, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. Feel free to bring family members! Coloring books and crayons will be provided upstairs for kids who come along to the event, with supervision.
11/29 – CGSU General Assembly @ 5.30pm @ Biotech Building, Room G10
We will be giving an update on the timing of the recognition election, nominating and voting for two Steering Committee positions (Communications & Outreach Chair; GPSA Liaison), and talking about how we can all get more involved in building an inclusive and powerful union!
