Committees are an important way in which members build the strength of our union.
The purpose of committees is to develop different campaigns or aspects of union work, always seeking to engage and involve the broadest part of our members in a bottom-up, democratic and participatory way. Please join us and help us transform our union and our university!
In the last few years, the Anti-Oppression Committee has been playing an especially active role in union organizing. For more information on their projects and how to get involved in anti-oppression work on your campus, check out their website.
