We are excited to announce that on Monday we officially filed for our election to form our union at Georgetown.
GAGE is forming a union organized by graduate workers and for graduate workers. Our mission is to ensure better living and working conditions for graduate workers across departments and disciplines. We’re a supportive and diverse community that looks out for each other because we recognize that graduate school can be a daunting experience at times. In the last year, we’ve lobbied against local and federal legislation that would harm our community, pressured the university administration to improve our benefits, held rallies and community-building events, and spoken with hundreds of graduate workers about their experiences at Georgetown.
The election is fast approaching! It will be held early-to-mid November...
What does this really mean?
1. It means we are reaching out to every graduate worker who is a eligible to become a member and vote. You can become a member by clicking here!
2. Join us on the Car Barn Patio for some warm beverages and snacks, to find out all of the details for our upcoming election and to make your Vote Yes Plan! Members will also be able to pick up their GAGE coffee mugs! RSVP HERE!
Where: Car Barn Patio
3. Get involved! We need volunteers to work as GAGE poll observers during the election and help reach out to every graduate worker.
