United Campus Workers of Georgia Local 3265

Take Action

To select new members of the Steering Committee.
This was previously announced in our email of June 3, 4:25 pm. Please refer to that email for further details. However, there has been a change: we will elect four (4) new members, not three, as Annelie Klein will step down from the Committee this July.
Continuing members are:

Jennifer Leyting, Veterinary School, UGA
Bekah Ward, Associate Professor of Biology, GA Gwinnett College
Jacob Weger, Graduate teaching assistant, Anthropology, UGA

Please find two documents linked here: a brief description of the duties of the Steering Committee, and minutes from the statewide call.

Select up to two (2) UCWGA members as delegates to the Communications Workers of America (CWA) convention in Las Vegas this summer, July 29–31, 2019. We are UCWGA Local 3265.

To nominate a UCWGA Member, send an email to 
[email protected] by midnight on Sunday, June 30. Self nominations are permitted.
Delegates will be responsible for arranging their own travel.

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.

Dear UCWGA Members,

The past year has been truly transformative for our union. We have built an organization of over 400 members, spanning across the state of Georgia on 9 campuses. We have active campaigns to advance a vision of public higher education workplaces that work for everyone- fair wages, fair treatment, transparency, and working conditions that center student success.

We had a successful Fair Wage picnic on May 1, 2019, thanks to the UGA employees, artists, and to our gracious sponsors! We look forward to this becoming an annual event.

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.
