Bargaining Strategy Meeting

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the action on May Day! Members confronted UW administration with a strong statement that they meet with us to discuss the urgent demands of providing an impact fund and provisions for summer funding for those affected by the travel bans. This coming Tuesday, May 9, 4121 members will meet in Research Commons Red C to continue developing plans around bargaining. In particular, we’ll strategize around organizing a strong turnout to our next bargaining session. We’ll also develop an action plan for pressuring administration to schedule the session as soon as possible. Please make it if you can!
