Kennesaw State University

We began forming our chapter of UCWGA in the Fall of 2018. We heard about the union from colleagues at other campuses and reached out to organize on our campus. Staff and Faculty are both experiencing a multitude of issues related to changing working conditions and USG led reorganization. The University does not seek input from employees and there is a lack of transparency and communication across campus.

We are coming together in spite of our differences, because together we can create change. 

Check out the Calendar of Events to join us at one of our upcoming meetings.

While we continue to work to reverse these cruel and unnecessary layoffs and stop further layoffs, workers who have already been laid off are left without health insurance, retirement benefits, and pay. Some are dealing with immediate health crises or cannot pay for housing, food, or other basic needs. Therefore, UCWGA-KSU has been raising money to help support the immediate needs of our coworkers who have been impacted by KSU’s layoffs.

All STUDENTS and WORKERS are invited to a REAL Campus Conversation about the KSU Budget and Layoffs!

Join us to hear from impacted workers, union members, and students! Join us to share your questions about what is happening on campus! Join us to collectively share ideas and solutions that work for all at KSU!

Our chapter published and distributed another press release today on the developing story of the 24 workers RIF'd (laid off) last month.

The following guest post was written by a worker on our campus.
