Union Grassroots Lobby Day

We are working to protect our university in this current state legislative session by building a legislative advocacy program. But we need your help – and you can have a little fun along the way.

You’re invited – nay, recruited – to join us next Monday at a reception/meet-and-greet and question-and-answer session with two of the state legislative leaders. Two key leaders in the State Senate and Assembly will come meet and speak with fellow union members on the evening of Monday the 16th at the Madison Labor Temple. Click here for all the details.

We need our legislative leaders to get the message loud and clear: Save our UW system and protect this university. The University of Wisconsin-Madison is the most important resource our state has, and we need to keep investing in the classroom and in the lab to make it the top-notch institution that it should be. We need to fund graduate student education, research, and work; the University works because we do.

So come on our to join us at this event to send that message to the legislative leadership. We need you there to send a strong message!

Now, we’d also like to ask you not only to join us at the event but also to come dressed in style. We have a box of special blue TAA t-shirts that send our message loud and clear, saying “The University Works Because We Do.” We’d like you to wear one to the event so that we can stand in solidarity. RSVP to PEC Chair Peter Rickman at rickman@wisc.edu (or contact him with any questions) and we’ll make sure to get you set up with a t-shirt.

We need to mobilize to make our legislative advocacy campaign work. And this is an easy way for you to get involved right now. So see you next Monday, with your blue TAA shirt, ready to send a message to the state legislators: Save Our UW System and Protect Our University.
