KSU

KSU’s chapter of the United Campus Workers of Georgia joins with millions around the globe in denouncing the recent police murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd as well as the white vigilante murder of Ahmaud Arbery in our own state.

Please see the memorandum that the chapter sent to KSU President Pamela Whitten today, along with with its accompaning release announcement to the press. These communications are responses to KSU's COVID-19 budget plan released to the public on May 22, 2002.

At UCWGA/KSU’s May 13 membership meeting, we established a Legislative Committee to serve as a vehicle for union members to get involved with political action at the local, state and federal levels. We hope additional members will join this committee. Our immediate priority is securing federal relief for public education.

On May 1, 2020, UCWGA joined with other Georgia unions and workers in a car and bike protest demanding worker protections, expanded health and unemployment benefits, rent freezes, and the release of prisoners in jails and immigration detention centers. Over 100 cars participated in the caravan alongside dozens of bicycles!
