Impressive Turn Out at First Solidarity Walk of the 2019-2020 Year!

Yesterday, the Local 1904 was pleased that around 20 members joined together on a warm September day for a show of strength at our first Wednesday Solidarity Walk of the academic year. As we are currently working without a contract, and given that some of our Local negotiations are moving more slowly than we would like, demonstrating our solidarity is as important as ever. Let's keep this fantastic momentum going, folx, and do this kind of thing (or better) every week...see you next Wednesday!

Local Supports Efforts By Sprague Library’s Health and Wellness Committee to Encourage Healthful Study Breaks

Over the summer, the Sprague Library’s Health and Wellness Committee put out a call for puzzles and games to help encourage students to take a break from studying. The officers of AFT Local 1904 answered this call and purchased puzzles and games so students can take study or “brain breaks” while working in the library.

The support of the library’s Health and Wellness Committee is only one of the ways AFT Local 1904 supports students beyond doing the important work we do. The Local also has a FAST Fund, which provides emergency financial assistance to students, and our scholarship, the Becker-Keene-Moore-Brook-Uhia-Waller Scholarship.
