OPIRG-Carleton General Meeting
Wed, July 15, 6 PM @ 326 Unicentre, Carleton
OPIRG-Carleton is facing a July 31st eviction from room 326 of the University Centre. OPIRG was served the eviction notice from the CUSA executive without sufficient notice or appropriate consultation. OPIRG has been a part of the Carleton campus since 1979 and has operated out of room 326 UC since 1988. CUSA has offered to move OPIRG to room 127B of the Unicentre, which is 73 per cent smaller than OPIRG’s current space. OPIRG has asked the CUSA executive to rescind the eviction notice and engage in dialogue with our shared membership and affected groups regarding space reallocation in the UniCentre.
On Wednesday, July 15 at 6pm, OPIRG is hosting a general meeting in room 326 UC so that our undergraduate and graduate student members, campus community, alumni, and community stakeholders can come together to discuss the current situation and potential courses of action. Please join us.
