April 29 The NYC Graduate Student Worker Struggle: Victories, Challenges, and Next Steps

A panel and mixer with organizers from NYU, the New School, and Columbia hosted by the CUNY Adjunct Project

Following NYU’s Graduate Student Organizing Committee’s (GSOC) successful contract campaign that concluded this semester, and, closely after, the National Labor Relations Board’s reinstatement of Graduate Workers of Columbia’s (GWC) and the Student Employees of the New School’s (SENS) petitions for union recognition, join us for this panel discussion with representatives of all three unions at which they’ll offer reflection on their organizing campaigns: the strategies and tactics, successes and challenges, and next steps.

6-9p, Graduate Center, CUNY (365 5th Ave.), room 5409
