General Membership Meeting

The December 1st Executive Committee meeting has been designated a General Membership Meeting. While all EC meetings are open to our membership, we are encouraging anyone who would like to join the discussion of GAU’s political activity in the wake of the Presidential election to attend. We will weigh the pros and cons of specific actions against our overarching mission as a union, and discuss how best to represent our members moving forward. This is an opportunity to provide feedback and help shape our message.

The meeting will be from 10:45-12:15, in KRB 324, and will include other EC business as usual. If you cannot attend, but would like to share your thoughts, you can email our Political Action Chair, Chris Segal, at

Thanksgiving Solidarity

Thanksgiving is a tricky holiday for many of us. It comes so close to the end of the semester that we can’t always make it home to spend with our families, while friends often leave town to be with theirs.

GAU is organizing its members to pick up some of the holiday slack and give a seat at the table to members with no place to spend the day. If you have room for an extra place at your table, or have nowhere else to go that day, GAU wants to help connect you with your other half!

Important Update Regarding Stipends

Attention: We have encountered a MAJOR discrepancy between our interpretation of the contract regarding stipends and FSU’s.

FSU’s position is that we are not entitled to see an actual, real increase of $525 during the academic year. Many of us will actually see an increase of less than $400 in our gross pay. We will be filing a grievance immediately and we expect it to go to arbitration. To hear more about this, please come to our General Membership Meeting on November 1. This affects every graduate assistant on campus, but the GMM is only open to members. We are trying very hard to put together an informative meeting, so please hold your questions until then.

Food and drinks will be provided. RSVP to help us plan.
