We will hold our fall-term membership meeting one week from today, on Tuesday, December 13 at 5:30pm in WLH 119.
We have had an exciting semester with a lot of changes, and the Membership Meeting will give us an opportunity to regroup and reflect as well as to look forward to what our agenda might be this spring. The fall Membership Meeting is also the time to elect officers of the union: you will have the opportunity to vote on the Chair, Co-chair, and Secretary-Treasurer positions of the union, as well as members of the Steering Committee. See you there!!
GESO joined with fellow union members in Locals 34 and 35, with workers from other unions and with a wide range of community leaders, students, and members of the Occupy New Haven movement for a rally and march last night. Participants called for good jobs and safe streets, an end to foreclosures and the violence that has plagued New Haven this year.
Speakers included Chris Garaffa from Occupy New Haven, LaToya Agnew of the New Elm City Dream, and Tyisha Walker, a Cook’s Helper in Commons Dining Hall who is the Secretary-Treasurer of Local 35. A video commemorated struggles for social and economic justice in New Haven and elsewhere.
