Please attend the “Addressing Hidden Labor?: Recognize, Retain, and Reward Women, LGBTQ, and People of Color at PSU” event on Wednesday, April 17, 1-3pm at SMSU 294. The event is coordinated by your AAUP union representatives and Caucus members representing women, LGBTQ, and people of color. The event will comprise a panel of experts who will speak to directed questions relating to the issue of hidden labor, how our contract can address potential inequities on this topic, and will be followed by an open Q&A and discussion. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP.
There is much to learn, identify, and recognize. The event is geared toward helping you contribute to the collective bargaining discussion commencing later in the spring and fall of 2019.
