Exciting news—earlier today, C/GPU delivered union authorization cards to the National Labor Relations Board! We have officially asked for recognition of our union. This calls for a celebration! Please join us at 5pm outside of Caltech Hall (same place as the majority rally) to enjoy some refreshments and show Caltech that we are more than ready for better working conditions.

Shortly before submitting the cards to the NLRB, grads and postdocs also handed a letter to Provost’s office requesting a fair process for verifying majority support for our union. We sincerely look forward to constructive engagement with the Caltech administration. 

What’s next now that we’ve filed? On December 12 at 5pm, join your colleagues for a discussion of the road to an election, what we might like to see in a future contract, and the contract bargaining process. RSVP here

But for now, let’s enjoy the current moment. See you at 5pm today!
