Mission Statement

The Working Parents Caucus advocates for the needs of student and grad employee parents as an important part of the union’s efforts, bringing family issues into bargaining, organizing, and advocacy campaigns. Bargaining for specific contract language regarding access to child care shall be the issue of focus, as well as other issues of particular interest to working parents, including but not limited to maternity/paternity leave, and Breastfeeding/Lactation Rooms. The Working Parents Caucus shall also advocate for issues facing, but not necessarily unique to, working parents such as affordable health insurance, and family medical leave, as necessary. In addition to general members, the Working Parents Caucus will consist of at least one officer from the Executive Council to serve as a general note-taker and point-person for budgetary considerations.
