GSA Emergency Membership Meeting
2015/04/23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Next week Carleton’s Board of Governors will vote to illegally take control of your GSA fees.
Were you one of the 507 graduate students who voted in the September referendum to cancel the University Centre (UC) fee and increase the GSA Operating Levy by the same amount?
After 7 months of stalling negotiations and dismissing several proposals presented by the GSA to fulfill this mandate from its membership, Carleton Senior Administration is recommending that the Board of Governors vote to not respect the referendum results.
On Tuesday, April 28th, the Board of Governors will vote to cancel the UC fee and increase the GSA Operating Levy by the same amount. At the same time, they will vote to unilaterally impose restrictions on how grads can use the Operating Levy – restrictions that are EXACTLY the same as the UC fee. Senior Admin is attempting to fool graduate students by appearing to accept the referendum results, while also willfully breaking their fee contract with the GSA by attempting to impose restrictions on the GSA Operating Levy.
To learn more, help the GSA develop its mobilization strategy, and enjoy free food, join us at an Emergency Membership Meeting this Thursday at 1PM in the GSA Lounge.
