For those of us who have been in Milwaukee for a few years, the annual May Day march is the thing to do on May 1st.
This year is no different! Join MGAA members, along with others from across the city (and beyond!) in a march for worker and immigrant rights. If you already have your red MGAA shirt, this would be a great day to wear it. If you don’t have one and want one, let us know and we’ll get you one!
Wednesday, 1 May | 11 AM
meet at Voces de la Frontera office (5th and National)
end at Veteran’s Park for speakers, food, etc.

The next general membership meeting has been scheduled for Thursday, May 9th.
It will start at 7:30 PM and will be held at the Black Rose.
More details to follow – mark your calendars!
At the federal level, the FMLA allows for up to 12 weeks unpaid leave. However, at UW-Madison the Astronomy Dept instituted a policy for Research Assistants securing 12 weeks of paid leave. Given our modest stipends, how awesome would that kind of security be?!
Physics GA Maddie W. spoke at the last GMM on the importance of pursuing a campus-wide policy for GAs in need of leave related to parental duties, personal sickness, etc. Currently this is negotiated on an individual basis, but we can do better!
