Graduate Workers,

After three years of organizing, we remain firm in our commitment to advocate for the rights and interests of graduate workers.

Though our recent bid for recognition remains inconclusive, grads are still organizing and fighting for a better Cornell. The election was far from the end of CGSU, and may not even be the end of our effort for recognition. Recognition or not, we aren’t going anywhere.

Cornell Graduate Students United was founded by a dozen members in 2014, and now organizes hundreds. Our hard work teaching and doing research is invaluable to Cornell’s mission and reputation. Cornell doesn't always share our interests, which is why we must keep advocating for them.

Join us in the fight for fairness, respect, and democracy at Cornell University.
