The SBU RA Union organized a demonstration before our last contract negotiation meeting with the SUNY Research Foundation. The SUNY RF has proposed giving NO raise to RAs in the next contract--which means no stipend increase for over 4 years! We recognized that this was unacceptable and took action to show the RF how serious we are as we negotiate for a raise in the next RA Union contract. Lots of RAs participated the demonstration to show members of the RF's bargaining team that we're all serious about a raise--and we're in this together. Let's keep the pressure on and continue to demand our raise until they agree!
