Reviving an old tradition, the TAA Volunteer Night is back!
We will be holding a volunteer night on February 11th at 5:30 PM at the TAA office. The volunteer night will go for a couple hours at most, with food and beverage for all.
At volunteer nights, members of the union get together to accomplish two things:
First, we have a great time with lots of grad student workers hanging out.
Second, we complete projects of the union that require lots of people working in a concentrated fashion.
At the upcoming volunteer nights, complete with food and beverage for all, we will (a) do some envelope-stuffing for a mailing to non-member grad student workers in our bargaining unit of TAs and PAs and (b) work on building our database of all grad student workers in our bargaining unit.
These are easy, low-intensity tasks that are really important for the work of union. And when we do them together as a group, it makes for light work for all — allowing us to have a great time, hanging out together.
