January 13 Information Session on New Postdoc Contract

Our contract expires on March 31, 2015.  Join your fellow postdoctoral researchers to help bargain a new contract!

Your union, the Postdoctoral Researcher Organization/UAW Local 2322, is preparing to bargain a second contract for when our current agreement expires at the end of March. In the last contract, we won paid time off, salary minimums, subsidized childcare, and groundbreaking protections for international postdocs! A strong union contract provides all these benefits and more, but we can’t make these gains without you. We need committed postdoctoral researchers to serve on the bargaining committee so that we can negotiate another history-making contract for Postdocs at UMass!

On Tuesday, January 13, the union is holding an informational session about bargaining at room 241H of the Integrated Science Building.  Your union rep, Ryan Quinn, will be there from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM to answer questions about bargaining and the contract and to listen to your priorities for the new contract.

If you would like to learn more about nominating yourself or a coworker to serve on the bargaining committee, please consider attending the information session, or contact Ryan at ryan@uaw2322.org or 413-422-0829.  We can’t win a contract without your help.
