GSOC-UAW and NYU4OWS rally Nov. 17

We received word from GSOC-UAW about this exciting event on campus next Thursday, November 17. If you can go on your lunch break, we encourage you to attend. UCATS will be there!

Join the Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC-UAW), NYU4OWS, undergraduates and other campus Unions on Thursday, November 17th at 1:30 PM at 44 West 4th Street. We will gather at the footsteps of the John Paulson Auditorium. Paulson donated $20 million dollars from over $4 billion in profits that he made from the 2008 financial crisis. There we will hear from students and workers about how the connection between the decision makers at NYU and their roles on Wall Street has affected us.

This action "The 99% Reclaim NYU from Wall Street" will highlight how NYU's corporate model places value on profits from Wall Street over students' and workers' education, working conditions, and interests. The goal is to bring the campus together in solidarity on our collective issues that have been caused by NYU's corporate structure and to galvanize the NYU community.
