Work-In against Mandatory Fee Policy April 26 | 11:30-3:30 | Bascom Hall
On March 22nd more than 100 grad workers showed up to deliver a petition with over 1000 signatures to our administrators, opposing a unilateral policy requiring grads to pay mandatory fees before we’re paid, or pay to enroll in a payment plan. We’ve had nearly 500 one-on-one conversations with our colleagues about the issue, empowering them to take action to improve their working conditions. We’ve collected hundreds of stories illustrating how the material hardship of mandatory fees adversely affects the working conditions and well-being of graduate workers.

OUR GOALS:
By the end of the semester, our administrators will agree to a policy that includes:
1) No change to the current (2017-2018) graduate fee payment policy
2) Working toward full remission of mandatory fees (including, but not limited to, segregated fees and international student fees) for grad workers
3) That this remission is covered by the university, that it will not come from funds that would otherwise be allocated for undergrads.
4) Graduate worker consultation and inclusion in any future changes to our payment policy

THE ACTION:
Work-In | Thursday, April 26 | 11:30a – 3:30 pm | Bascom Hall
A Work-In is a way to demonstrate the often invisible or unrecognized labor graduate workers do to support the university. Join us as we display the work that graduates do for the benefit of the university. Bring your grading, your reading, your writing - the university works because we do.

UPDATE: Because of our continued pressure on the administration, the Bursar has committed to preserving the previously won fee payment policy — three full paychecks before we pay. It’s time the university commits to working toward full mandatory-fee remission.
