A Message to Our New Graduate Student Worker Union

Dear Graduate Students United Members, Present and Past,

We congratulate you on this historic victory. The effort you have put into
organizing and establishing solidarity over the years is enormously
impressive and inspiring. We congratulate you, but we also thank you. This
is also a victory for the University of Chicago, which should never be
equated with its administration.

We look forward to working alongside our graduate student worker union and
all of our students on the difficult but essential project of democratizing
our university. Along with so many others, including both of our state’s
senators, we also urge our administration to respect the democratic process
and accept this result.

In Solidarity,

The University of Chicago Advocacy Chapter of the AAUP
