General Membership Meeting - Feb. 2021

On February 18, 2021, we hosted our first-ever General Membership Meeting (GMM)! This event was open to all registered, dues-paying graduate researchers and due to COVID-19 was held via Zoom. At this meeting, we:

  • Discussed the biggest wins of our first contract, including major rights and benefits
  • Went over the results of the union survey we released ahead of the meeting
  • Provided updates on our resolved and ongoing conflicts with Management
  • Introduced our proposed anti-racism and hardship funds
  • Illustrated how dues work and where we are allocating them
  • Highlighted the Research Training Conditions Task Force (RTCTF) and their work
  • Elected our GRU delegates for the AFSCME Oregon Convention 2021

Thanks to everyone who attended! Keep an eye out for when we host the next one, and if you're not a dues-paying member yet, register now to make sure you don't miss out!
