On March 16, 2018, The Presidents of four major unions - The American Federation of Teachers, Service Employees International Union, United Autoworkers, and UNITE Here - signed a letter uniting together around graduate worker unionization efforts across the United States.
When asked what efforts they may look to, AFT President Randi Weingarten “cited Georgetown University’s recent decision to negotiate terms of a graduate student union election outside NLRB channels.”
We are the example everyone is now are looking towards.
We cannot emphasize this enough. Our movement is not just for current and future Georgetown workers. Our movement is for all workers across the country. It is for GWC-UAW Local 2110 Graduate Workers of Columbia, for Local 33 - UNITE HERE, for Boston College Graduate Employees Union - UAW, Graduate Students United, Loyola Worker Coalition, and more.
