UAW 4121

November Monthly Membership Meeting – Organizing Across Units

Join fellow 4121 members at November’s Membership Meeting, to be held Thursday, November 10, 2022 from 5-6 pm. The meeting will be held on Zoom, and you can fill out this RSVP form to access the Zoom link. All members in good standing are encouraged to attend, and new members may sign up for UAW4121 by filling out this membership form. 

Join the meeting to connect with other ASEs, Postdocs, and Research Scientists! This month’s meeting will focus on organizing across units, and the ways that the different units represented by 4121–Academic Student Employees, Postdocs, and Research Scientists–can join together as 8,000 members strong in solidarity to win on issues that affect us all as UW academic workers. Relatedly, we’ll be talking about exciting updates from our union siblings in the University of California locals (UAW 2865 & 5810), whose members overwhelmingly voted to authorize a strike in November if necessary to win a fair contract.

The proposed agenda for the meeting is as follows:

  • Approve Agenda
  • Approve Minutes
  • Organizing updates & solidarity actions
  • Cross-unit organizing across ASEs, PDs, and RSEs
  • Adjourn

Any member who would like to propose additional agenda items or submit materials for the meeting is welcome to email by 12pm on Thursday, November 10. For more information about how the meeting will be structured and how you can use Zoom’s features to participate, check out this page on our website.
