At tonight’s membership meeting, the recently elected Executive Board and Bargaining Committee members presented a report and plan on social justice and union culture. As a continuation and expansion of the Local’s work over the years to address systemic oppression, as well as in response to some member questions about things that have happened at recent membership meetings, this report proposes some new concrete plans for trainings and workshops to address these issues and help the union continue to serve all its members and create progressive change on campus and beyond.

We welcome your collaboration as we develop these plans in the coming weeks. Feel free to contact us at with feedback, questions or ideas for improvement.

In Solidarity,
