Thursday, December 14th at Oglesby Union Room 312 from 5 until 7, we will hold our General Membership Meeting for the Fall 2017 semester. Come learn about the state of the Union, meet other GAU members, and discuss topics that you feel are relevant to Graduate Assistants at FSU.
Please RSVP on the Facebook site so we know how much food to have on hand.
Our next department representative meeting will be on November 16 from 5-7pm at Oglesby Student Union Room 311B.
If you are interested in becoming a department rep, this would also be a fantastic meeting for you to attend.
For this meeting, we will discuss the contract bargaining process with our bargaining chair Clancy McGilligan. This is a complex process that is not only important to every Graduate Assistant (GA) on campus, but also has ramifications for incoming graduate students as well. The more help we have with this, the better it is for all the GAs at FSU. Last meeting, we discussed grievances and had a lot of productive conversation. We hope to get even more great discussion going on this time too.
If you are interested in becoming a new Department Representative and are curious about what that entails, it means that you will:
1) attend monthly training sessions (food is provided!)
2) represent your department to GAU and GAU to your department;
3) recruit and give orientation presentations for your department;
4) experience a rewarding feeling from representing the union and hero status for helping out your fellow graduate students.
If you plan to attend, please RSVP on the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/139938636653819/ and help us get a count to prepare how much food we need. Also, let us know on Facebook if you have any dietary restrictions.
We will be holding our Spring General Membership Meeting on Thursday, March 30, from 6:30-8:00 pm in WMS 013. During this meeting, we will accept nominations for all elected positions. They are detailed below, along with an overview of the election process.
We will also have an opportunity to meet Kyle Hill and Stacey Pierre, FSU’s new Student Body President and Vice President. Food will be provided.

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 email@example.com

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.
