Join the Fight for Student Workers' Rights!

Our union has made consistent gains in each successor contract to improve the lives of each and every Academic Student Employee in the CSU system. Here are some of the significant gains we have made in JUST the last two years:

 

  • Pay raises for EVERY Academic Student Employee

  • Pay for all training and pedagogy courses required for employment 

  • Pay for ISAs for no-show appointments 

  • Pay for TAs for all approved hours worked in excess of time-base

  • Stronger protection against harassment and bullying on campuses

  • Protection for all immigrant and international students 

 

We were able to make these gains because of a large and engaged membership. By joining your union, you are helping all of us bargain for better wages, benefits, and working conditions, and you are empowering us to enforce the rights in our Collective Bargaining Agreement. By being a member, your voice will be heard, and you can take part in the democratic functioning of the local union. Only members get to voice what rights we need to bargain for and vote on our next contract. 

We're going into bargaining this summer! Every time we go into bargaining, ALL of our contract is on the line. We can win new rights, but we can also lose the rights we already have. Whether we're able to keep these rights depends entirely on our membership. It's up to you to join the fight to show the CSU that student workers deserve better and that we are going to stand our ground together.

Do you want a better workplace? Do you want a living wage?

To win these rights, we need YOU.

Our initiation fee and dues are set by Article 16 of the UAW International Constitution. New members pay a one-time initiation fee of $10. Every member contributes a fixed-amount of dues every month, pre-tax out of their paycheck. Dues are only 1.44% of gross wages - this is $7.53 for ISAs, $12.98 for GAs, and $16.96 for TAs. If you hold multiple positions, you will only pay dues for the highest position. Members pay dues only during the time that they are employed in the bargaining unit.
