The results of the Open Forums on Graduate Education are in! You won’t be surprised to find that many of the things CGE has worked for over the years (fee relief, liveable and competitive salaries, partner and dependent health insurance, and workload protections, to name a few) reflected in the priorities of forum participants. Grads at the forum shed light on other emerging concerns and provided some practical solutions to many of these problems. CGE is looking forward to seeing the Graduate School implement many of these solutions in their Five Year Strategic Plan, and you can bet we’ll be working on seeing them actualized through bargaining as well!
Have a look at the report here, and please share any other issues and solutions you’d like CGE to be working on.
