*** WE ARE UNIONIZED!!! ***
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS, AND MANY THANKS to all 389 of us! On Thursday April 27th 2023, we successfully voted to unionize. We had a 33% voter turnout (even on the Study Day on main campus!), with 98% of votes in favor of unionizing. This is a major victory, and definitely shows our strength! Clearly, the UMassD grad workers mean business.
These numbers also show how badly mistreated the UMassD grad workers are. Making less than 10% of a living wage is brutal. It is time to change this nightmare.
WE DESERVE BETTER.
Stay tuned for more info in the near future about our new "brand" as a certified bargaining unit, summer meetings and tasks, and social events!
