Membership Bargaining Update: 7/25/22

Bargaining Weekly on Mondays 11 am – 3 pm:

How much does PSU value GAs?

Good news! We can finally put a number on how much a single GA’s needs are worth to PSU administration. By dividing their proposal of a $10,000 emergency relief fund – that’s right, you counted those zeros correctly– with the number of GAs, we can give a precise measure of how much your university cares about you. $18 per year…

Feel valued yet? Keep in mind that this offer is in lieu of any health benefits, any childcare support, or any support for DACA and international GAs. We would normally say something here to get you riled up, but as they say, a picture says a thousand words.

However, if you’d like to express your feelings on how $18 a year will cover your needs as a GA, we are continuing our letter writing campaign until the end of the 27th. The form to complete a letter is here: 

You can also send your own letter directly to And of course, if you’d like to see the minor miracle of our bargaining team holding back our eye rolls, you can attend bargaining sessions at the link above!
