Labor Day Luncheon

The Coalition of Graduate Employees at Penn State is hosting a Labor Day luncheon at noon (September 7, 12PM) in front of Old Main for all graduate employees, families, and allies to discuss how a graduate employee union might better our position at Penn State.

At this luncheon, the CGE invites all graduate students and their friends, families and allies, to meet for a public conversation over graduate employee unionization – its benefits, costs, risks, and opportunities. Given that Labor Day marks a national day of recognition of the labor done by workers, the CGE would like to celebrate the occasion by discussing graduate employee welfare, workload and wages. This conversation is all more relevant since this public holiday will actually be another day at the office for many graduate students.
