On Friday, March 6th (not Monday the 9th) at 1 PM, CGE and GTFF members, among others, will be testifying in front of the Oregon House Education Committee about the effects of fees on the lives of graduate employees. Anyone who wants to join us is welcome. Please contact CGE at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-757-7141 if you are interested in participating or have questions.
This is part of our effort to pass HB2508, a bill that would eliminate fees for all graduate employees in the entire Oregon University System. The full text of HB2508 can be found here.
AFT-OR will also be holding a Lobby Day the morning of Monday, March 9th. If you are interested in speaking to your state legislators about issues that are important to you, you can find out more and register to participate here or contact us.
