Our Union holds casual get-togethers, or “Payday Parties” almost every other Friday afternoon during the academic year.

We try to have one Tuesday party for those who cannot make Fridays-it is on the first precepting Tuesday of the semester. Payday Parties begin at 4:00pm and last until approximately 6:00pm in room C-134.

All members of the Stockton Federation of Teachers unit, including adjunct faculty-(even if you are not teaching this semester), are invited to participate and enjoy great ethnic food and the fellowship of their colleagues.

At each payday party we select a different food theme and have an area restaurant supply the cuisine. There is usually something for everyone-even those with vegetarian, or gluten free needs. In addition to the main dishes, there is always a wonderful assortment of beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, as well as delightful desserts. E-mails will be sent to full members detailing each menu.

Adam Miyashiro, SFT’s Secretary, is the party team leader for the 2017-2018 season. SFT members Jongbok Yi, Ron Hutchinson, Manish Madan and Wondi Geremew complete our team. You are cordially invited to attend, enjoy the great food and interact with about 130-150 of your colleagues. Your spouses, significant others and children are always welcome to join you and we hope to see all our members, including adjuncts! (*since alcohol is served, please do not invite your students)
