2006 Annual Congress Resolutions

CGEU 2006

Logo Development: CGEU encourages all allied locals to help develop the CGEU logo and use it on their printed materials and websites.

Solidarity with GSOC: CGEU encourages all locals to aid all other locals in the upcoming year with priority given to helping GSOC win at NYU. All locals are encouraged to send activists, staff, and resources to help with this important and urgent fight. All locals are encouraged to designate a liaison to GSOC.

Constitution Committee: Whereas, in the face of intransigent state governments in the Midwest, university administrators at NYU, Yale, and other schools in the East, and a recent NLRB decision that denies our very right to organize collectively, it has become necessary for multiple locals to engage in unified actions to achieve our aims,

Whereas, the success of any one local depends on the success of us all, and a threat against one constitutes a threat against all,

Whereas, each of our locals is committed to democratic decision-making in the planning and execution of collective actions,

Be it resolved that a committee be formed to draft a CGEU Constitution, which will lay out the ideals and purposes of the coalition, and describe the process by which collective decisions are to be made. The draft constitution will be reviewed, amended, and submitted to a vote at the annual meeting in 2007, and ratified in the coming months upon endorsement of two thirds of the member organizations.

The CGEU constitution shall in no way violate the individual constitutions of any local, including the process by which each local decides to engage, or not to engage, in any action.

Passed August 13, 2006
