CGEU: Coalition of Graduate Employee Locals
The Coalition of Graduate Employee Unions formed in 1992 to support the organization of new graduate employee unions; to strengthen established unions; and to provide a forum for graduate employee unionists to meet, share information and work together toward common goals. The coalition holds an annual conference featuring workshops on organizing, leadership development, negotiation strategies, and member mobilization. Each year, the conference is hosted by a different union; here are the locations and hosting unions (and international union affilations) of the past ten conferences.
The Coalition is unusual in that it brings together unions which are affiliated with a number of different international unions, AFL-CIO affiliates as well as independent unions. The Coalition has no formal structure -- no constitution, by-laws, or officers.
The following articles from The Chronicle of Higher Education report on the Coalition's 1997 National Day of Action and give an overview of a recent conference.
