Postdoc Rally Friday Morning
Tomorrow, Friday October 2nd, Postdocs are calling on the UW administration to change a discriminatory policy that prevents certain independently funded Postdocs (who are mainly International Scholars) from receiving healthcare. Can you join the outdoor physically-distanced rally near campus from 8:30-10:30am? More details and RSVP are here.
As of October 1st, King County Metro will once again start collecting fare. All Academic Student Employees and Postdocs should be receiving a UPASS at no charge to you. You may need to reactivate your UPASS which can be done by tapping it on an ORCA reader or sending a request through the Transportation Services website. Members with UPASS issues should fill out this form.
