The main purpose of the Organizing Committee is to increase awareness of the GEO to graduate students and members, as well as the signing of cards, and to organize collective actions and events (social and non-social) surrounding the Contract Campaign and other issues pertaining to the Union. Examples include rallies, office visits, department lunches, distribute the bargaining survey, teach-ins, etc. During bargaining cycles, this main focus of the Organizing Committee is the Contract Campaign, because collective action is the means by which we win better terms in our contract. We generally meet every 2 weeks. Meetings should last from 1 hour to 1.5 hours depending on what we are doing.
