Rally for Our Contract

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Last year graduate employees participated in a historic strike for better wages and to reduce fees.

As part of our new contract, the University agreed to give all graduate workers covered under the GEO contract a one-time $55 payment to offset the cost of fees.

The payment is supposed to be distributed as part of the October and February paychecks.

Last October, the payment was a month late; this February, no one received the payment at all.

When the University does not pay graduate workers the amount it has contractually agreed to, it is wage theft: plain and simple!

The contract is not going to be enforced through the University’s goodwill.

It is only going to be enforced through worker power!

It is time to demand our $55 payment from the University!

Join us on Tuesday, February 25th, 2020, at 12:00 pm in the quad on SCE to demand that the University correctly implement what we won in our contract!
