We are the Graduate Employees Union of Portland State University
The Graduate Employees Union, AFT/AAUP (GEU) is a union that represents nearly 700 graduate teaching assistants, research assistants, and administrative assistants (GAs) at PSU. On March 28th 2018, we ratified our first contract, securing annual raises, an increase to the minimum hourly pay rate, fee subsidies, workload protections, tuition remission, and much more.
GEU is rooted in a tradition of solidarity and labor. We are committed to establishing a powerful, democractic, transparent organization of GAs advocating for fair wages, workplace protections, and healthcare. We are building lasting power to support graduate employees in their work and study.
In 2019-2020, we are dedicated to creating a place for graduate employees to find and develop an enduring community.
