The Power Through Unity Rally was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone for coming out, especially United Academics and the GTFF who turned out in large numbers.
Carla McNelly, SEIU 503 Local 085 President, kicked off the rally. The Labor Choir lead the crowd in some new songs. Johnny Earl, Chief Bargaining Delegate gave a spirited bargaining proposal update and what to expect/prepare for in the future. United Academics Gina Psaki, Vice President for Tenure Track Faculty Affairs, gave an update on how UA bargaining is going. GTFF President Shawna Meechan gave a short speech on what they learned from their strike and that we need to know. The last speaker was Gabi Hanley from SLAP.
