Join a committee

Joining a committee is a great way to make use of your skill set in helping to build our union. If any of these committees interest you, please get in touch! Each of the committees has a blurb below; feel free to contact the chairs for information on jumping in, or check our calendar for upcoming meetings. Our committees are open to all GSOC members and are dedicated to helping keep our union strong.

Organizing Committee

We are the Organizing Committee! Our job is to build a strong union presence, keep the union mobilized, and work towards maximum union participation. This year, we will focus on signing up new members and work to develop leadership in departments across NYU. We hope to build a strong network of volunteer stewards and department contacts, who will help enforce the new contract. We will also organize any issue campaigns that GSOC collectively decides to undertake.

Communications Committee

We maintain social media, write you member updates, archive our news, and coordinate among the press and our allies. Our work is a combination of on-going grind and long- and short-term projects. This summer we’re redesigning the website, developing a social media team, and transitioning communication structures. We welcome the contributions of members and their unique talents in helping us design, distribute, and author works that inform and energize our membership!

Political Solidarity Committee

We support and liaise with social justice organizing efforts at NYU, in the broader labor movement, and throughout New York City. This includes direct communication with other student groups, participating in citywide organizing coalitions, drafting letters of support and proposing resolutions to be ratified by the Assembly of Stewards or membership, coordinating GSOC participation in protests and forums, and generally making sure we active fighters in the city’s struggles for social, economic, environmental and racial justice.
