Get Involved

374209_296400110399492_170136822_n.jpgThere are a lot of ways you can get involved in GSU. First of all, you can sign a GSU authorization card, affirming that you are a member of the union.

From November 2016 to May 2017 we ran a card-campaign for union-recognition – collecting signed authorization cards from prospective members of the bargaining unit, to file for a union election. On May 8th we filed authorization cards from a majority of graduate teaching and research assistants to the National Labor Relations Board for an election recognizing our union. A favorable majority of those voting in the election will enable GSU to bargain a contract – we will then be looking to elect a bargaining committee, that will bargain a contract and bring it to the membership for a vote.

We currently await the decision of the NLRB regional director about our petition to hold a union election this fall. So, contact your departmental organizer, and sign the following petition to vote yes for a union! Or contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss the campaign.
