Bargaining Committee

Since being elected in February, our Bargaining Committee has presented the administration with close to thirty proposals to raise stipends and hourly wages, to address sexual harassment and discrimination in the workplace, to improve access to child care, and much more.

As we continue to bargain with Georgetown, we need a Bargaining Committee that can speak to the wide range of disciplines, demographic groups, and experiences of graduate employees. In particular, we need graduate employees in the STEM fields, international graduate employees, and Masters graduate employees to join the Bargaining Committee.

Nominate your colleagues by October 13.
Nominations will be open until 5 PM on Sunday, October 13, 2019. The Election Committee contacts all nominees to verify whether they accept their nomination.

DETAILS about nomination process

Self-nominations are accepted.

The nomination and election process will be overseen by the Election Committee, which consists of 3 volunteers from the Organizing Committee: Ray Kim (PhD candidate, Theology and Religious Studies); Kathryn Sanchez (PhD candidate, Biology); and Cory Young (PhD candidate, History).
