Get Involved!

ACTION ALERT:

The LUC administration still refuses to even sit down and negotiate with the Graduate Student Union, which is clearly inconsistent with their commitment to Catholic social teachings and social justice, both of which stress the importance of workers’ right to be represented through labor unions. In addition to being students, grad students are workers, the teaching assistants and teaching fellows who, like other faculty, do much of the work to educate Loyola’s students.

On Tuesday, October 16 from 11:30-1:30 in Damen Student Center, Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt, BVM Multipurpose Room (North), the administration will be holding a meeting on the University’s budget. The meeting is open to all LUC faculty, staff, and students who wish to attend.

The grad student union will have an organized presence there in order to press the administration to sit down and negotiate with them. PLEASE come to the meeting and show our support for them!!
