Georgia Institute of Technology

Graduate students, staff, and faculty began organizing at Georgia Institute of Technology in the Fall of 2018.

We have identified issues and created campaign committees to address changes we seek:

  1. Healthcare Campaign: Concerns: (1) potential hike in insurance for graduate students, (2) lack of mental health coverage for non-student employees, (3) potential change in psychiatric hospital referred to students, (4) false campus narrative of sacrificing mental health for success
  2. Parking Campaign: Concerns: (1) parking alternatives to current $800 parking permit, (2) research on Midtown parking
  3. Graduate Stipend Campaign: Concerns: (1) increase the minimum stipend to a living wage, (2) potential institute insurance hike for less coverage, (3) clarifying workers’ rights to unionizing.
  4. OneUSG Payroll Transfer Campaign: Concern: Moving to OneUSG will lead to delay pay to a paycheck that will be paid out later in the month. People living paycheck-to-paycheck are not being provided viable solutions for the temporary loss.
