Fight for Your Rights!

Join with us and Fight for your Rights this Wednesday, November 30th at AFT Local 1904's Solidarity Walk starting at 12:30 p.m. outside of Café Diem.

Help send a message to Dr. Cole that by suspending and proposing the elimination of
Step Increases (increments) and the Sabbatical Leave, Career Development, and Tuition Reimbursement Programs, will only serve to unite us and strengthen our resolve at the bargaining table on December 2nd. Let's make it the biggest turnout of the semester!

Show her that she is AFT Local 1904's mobilizer-in-chief
as we walk through campus in solidarity wearing AFT t-shirts, buttons, or blue jackets. We will walk no matter what the weather brings. Want a free AFT t-shirt or AFT Rain Poncho? Contact AFT Local 1904's office ext. 4453 or email Jennifer Higgins @ to make arrangements to get one.

Homecoming 2011 in the Snow

AFT Local 1904 joined the campus community in welcoming alumni, parents and students to the Homecoming activities on Saturday, October 29th.

Even Rocky stopped by to quench his thirst.

Despite the wind and the snow, we were there handing out rain ponchos and water bottles. The water bottles have an AFT Local 1904 label on them with a QR code that led to a welcome page and our new Community page.
