Last week marked the 70th Annual United Auto Workers union convention, held in the union town of Las Vegas. GSOC members were there in their roles as voting delegates of Local 2110, and they got to hear a speach by UAW president Ron Gettelfinger in which he mentioned our struggle as one of five out of over 100 strike situations in the last four years. Read more about Gettelfinger's speach at Axcess News. Elsewhere in academia, adjunct faculty at Marymount Manhattan have voted 95-23 to form a union affiliated with NYSUT. Higher education remains at the forefront of contemporary unionization efforts--remember, GSOC is the future.
