We are UT graduate student workers fighting for a living wage and just working conditions. We demand that every graduate student worker be guaranteed a living wage, free tuition, fully funded year-round physical and mental health care, and access to affordable childcare and housing.  Our vision for UT Austin is a university that embodies equity, diversity, academic excellence, and dignity for all of its workers.

We are looking for graduate worker volunteers to act as representatives for their departments. If you're interested, sign up here and get involved!

We meet Tuesdays at 5:30pm in-person and on Zoom. Join our Slack for details on location/link.


Dec 4 2023 - TAs dismissed for message of support offered to Palestinians

Two social work students at UT were dismissed from their TA positions for providing mental health resources for students affected by the ongoing tragedies in Palestine. This is an act of retaliation, and we call on Steve Hicks School of Social Work Dean Allan Cole to immediately reinstate them.
