The Working Group on Support Staff Issues is planning a reunion of past and present members at its December 12 meeting.
At the meeting, members will have an opportunity to reconnect and to share their past experiences, and former co-conveners will discuss the group's accomplishments. Past achievements affecting MIT policy include vacation accrual on anniversary, domestic partner benefits, improvements in retirement benefits, and more vacation time for support staff with at least 15 years of service. Membership is open to all staff in the MIT community who are committed to working on support staff issues and concerns.
The reunion will be from noon-1:30pm in the Bush Room (10-105). The group encourages all past, present and future members of the Working Group to attend. Those who plan to do so should contact Edward A. Jacobson at x3-5030 or email@example.com by Friday, Dec. 6 so enough refreshments can be ordered.
