As graduate student workers we envision a university community with:
CONTRACT AND WORKPLACE PROTECTIONS Reliable procedures for addressing workplace harassment and discrimination. Stable work contracts without unilateral, unanticipated changes.
FAIR AND TRANSPARENT COMPENSATION FOR WORK Removal of income caps and continuation fees. Regularity in the pay schedule and stipends adjusted to cost of living.
RELIABLE AND AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACCESS Pro-family policies for parental leave and leaves of absence. Full coverage and access to university health and wellness resources.
