Minutes from 4-24-2012 Meeting: Approved
Previously Made Decisions: None this week.
RA Campaign Update
May Day Rally: At noon today in the library quad.
Solidarity Fair: Was on Sunday at Central Park. Wren saw about 15 CGEers and they all helped at the table. There were lots of postcards signed and all the CGEers had a good time. The event was physically spread out but each part of it was full of people!
Bargaining Update: Next session is May 11: Hoping for response from OSU on what they’ve been talking about.
Membership Drive Update: It went well for reconnecting with members, and got about 12 new cards.
ASOSU Election Recap: The Harris/Cushing ticket won. We haven’t seen results yet on whether the grad write-ins were elected.
Strategic Retreat: All or at least most of the incoming officers are okay with June 22 – 24. Ashley and Angela will get the house reserved ASAP.
GMM Recap: Great turnout (>70) and the food and beer were fantastic. Some people mentioned to Wren that they felt a little uncomfortable with the awkward conversation with David Rives. The C&B Amendments took a lot of time to talk about, but it was important work and the discussion was good; same with the M/V/V discussion. In the future, we should reserve a longer time at the Senior Center because we’re always going late; need to decide about taking a break in the middle to help keep focus.
Online Tax Payment: Approved
Salary Information: A member has asked for anonymized salary data for a few departments in order to argue for an appropriate raise that they and a colleague haven’t been given. We’ll help with this.
Meeting adjourned at 11:35 AM
