Today, after a year of conversations with grad assistants across Penn State we filed with the Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board to vote on unionization. This is a critical step for grad assistants at Penn State and we look forward to working with Penn State to make sure this democratic process goes smoothly.
The announcement that we are filing came after a group of our members and supporters from the Penn State community delivered a letter to Old Main calling on Penn State to take a non-interference stance on our election. We hope that Penn State will respect the right of graduate assistants to decide for themselves their future.
We look forward to working with Penn State on the details of the election, and we trust that they will ensure that all affected grad assistants will be able to participate in a timely vote on this issue.
Finally, please join this afternoon at 3pm Chumley’s to celebrate the success of this campaign.
