Why OrganizeUW?

By working together, you and your colleagues and classmates will help win your future union! Read on to find out some ways, big and small, to get involved!

OrganizeUW now has a logo!

We are very excited to unveil our new logo - our sleek and stylish goose friend will make an appearance on (environmentally-friendly) swag, coming soon! While the goose has yet to be named, submit your idea for a future vote.
