As you may know, the University has recently called for state-sponsored mediation in bargaining, although CGE’s only remaining demands are to retain our $300 per term lump sum differential and increase the basement salary for graduate employees to the figure our own Graduate School recommends.
While we believe our proposals are reasonable and just, OSU won’t budge. And with its $40 million surplus, the University has finally admitted in bargaining that its refusal to boost the conditions of graduate employees even marginally is not an affordability issue. Investment in graduate employees is simply not a priority.
Let’s show we’re able and willing to mobilize for what we deserve. Rally in support of a fair contract.
- When: Wednesday September 8, 12:30 PM
- Where: Start on the steps of the MU Quad, then march to Kerr
- Bring: Your good-looking CGE gear, your signs, your voices, your friends
This rally is for EVERYONE! Invite friends, family, students, faculty, community members and anyone else who supports decent compensation for the people who power Orange.
