Take Action

The Georgia Southern chapter of UCWGA began forming in the summer of 2018 in response to the growing uncertainty generated by a mishandled consolidation and the ominous appearance of the Comprehensive Administrative Review (CAR.) Our goal is to increase awareness of work and education related issues you might have experienced as a result of the consolidation. Please take a moment to fill out the brief survey to SHARE YOUR STORY and have your voice be heard. 


UCWGA is wants YOUR story on how and why your wage is not enough! We believe these stories are exactly the kind of thing that can make an impact on our elected representatives and the administrators at your Public State of GA Institution!

  • Low wages keeping you down? 
  • Health insurance coverage too expensive or inadequate? 
  • Do you work a second job just to make ends meet? 
  • Are you receiving government subsidies to help keep food on the table, heat/cool your home?
  • Have another reason? SHARE IT! 

We invite you - or people you know - to tell us your stories in written or video-recorded form. Take a short selfie vid or write it down and email it to [email protected]
Need help telling yours? Email us and we will work with you!

May 1, 2019  Building on years of prior work by the Economic Justice Coalition, efforts this year by United Campus Workers of Georgia and a coalition of community partners have resulted in real progress, as UGA President Gere Morehead announced a wage increase of about 2.8% for the institution’s lowest paid workers.

UCWGA fights for the freedom of speech for all university workers. We expect the University of Georgia to do the same. Read our letter to President Morehead signed by 126 faculty, staff, students, and community members.
