Dear Graduate Student Community,
You should know about the new "Meet and Confer" process that permits Graduate Assistants (GA) to seek the representation of a third party, such as a union, in taking their concerns to university administrators about such issues as hours, wages, and workplace conflicts. Does this mean you are unionized? Is there a collective bargaining procedure? What protections are G.A.s entitled to under this new policy? These questions and more will be answered by Graduate Student Government representatives at the
Meet and Confer Q&A Sessions
Wed, November 7, 9:30a-11:30a
Thurs, November 8, 2:30p-4:30p
Terrapin Room A, Office of Student Involvement, STAMP (ground floor by the UM Shuttle stop entrance)
Light breakfast and refreshments will be served. Information will also be provided regarding the graduate student advisory group that will be elected to represent GAs in the Meet and Confer process. Directors of units, as well as Deans of Colleges and Professional Schools are currently seeking candidates to run for these elected positions. The deadline for nominations is November 16th.
