David Cecil has worked in the labor movement for the last 15 years, most of those years with the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation. Before his union career, he attended graduate school here at the UO, earning a MA in History, before discovering that he loved bargaining contracts more than he loved 19th-cenutry American medical-legal history. He does love bargaining contracts.
He currently serves on the Board of Advisors of the National Center for the Study of Collective Bargaining in Higher Education.
In his spare time, he drinks beer on the patio with his wife, tends to his blossoming record collection, and sleeps.
