Labor Day Potluck & Picnic

Join the United Campus Workers of Georgia for a Labor Day Picnic!
Relax and hang out with your fellow workers as we enjoy some good food and fun!
We will be at the pavilion with hot dogs and veggie dogs on the grill. If you are able, bring a dish or drinks to share. This is a family friendly event with a great play area for children.

We are excited to announce our new UCWGA Steering Committee!
There were six nominees for the four vacant positions on the UCW GA Steering Committee, but two of them withdrew their names, leaving four. These members have thus been elected by acclamation: 


Alex Cummings, Georgia State
Terri Dunbar, Georgia Tech
Daren Fowler, Georgia State
Laurie McDowell, Kennesaw State

Alex, Terri, Daren, and Laurie will join our continuing Steering members:
Jennifer Leyting, UGA

We had a successful Fair Wage picnic on May 1, 2019, thanks to the UGA employees, artists, and to our gracious sponsors! We look forward to this becoming an annual event.
