From the Neighborhood | SEIU 2007 helps Stanford Graduate Employees Union

Our Union, SEIU 2007, has represented greater than 1200 Stanford staff since 1970. We proudly help the Stanford Graduate Employees Union marketing campaign to unionize graduate pupil staff. The continuing points they face, together with lower-than-living wages, spiraling healthcare prices and intensely excessive housing costs, are the identical points that confront all of our SEIU 2007 members. Graduate pupil staff shouldn’t need to depend on meals banks to make ends meet. Solely by way of collective bargaining on the graduate degree will these important staff obtain the extent of dignity and monetary safety they want and deserve. Almost 30,000 graduate college students have already unionized all through the USA, and after starting their Union organizing efforts right here at Stanford, their Chapter’s inner officer elections are on Wednesday and Thursday.

It’s in the end in Stanford College’s curiosity to acknowledge the Stanford Graduate Employees Union and cut price with them in good religion. SEIU 2007 calls upon College management to shortly acknowledge the Union and promptly have interaction in bargaining to resolve these essential points.
