CGEU and creating a real coalition

This weekend I attended CGEU, the Coalition of Graduate Employee Unions, at Colombia over the weekend. Not only was it exciting to see my brothers and sisters from across the academic labor movement all in the same auditorium, the call to action over the recent NLRB decision made me feel like we are moving in the right direction. The message coming off the weekend seemed to be ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE, ORGANIZE! Sometimes it's really easy to get bogged down in the specific circumstances of my department and New Haven, so it was refreshing to hear some voices from outside our fight that seemed totally willing to support it and make it stronger.
