    Graduate students organize a push for unionization

    September 7, 2023 // Chase said Iowa State’s potential union will be able to rely on UE for assistance in negotiations. “For example, University of Iowa is able to lean on their parent union and say, ‘Hey, we want an increase in salary, we want more health care supports,’ or ‘We want to waive or reduce these student fees,’ and through collective bargaining, they can negotiate for those things,” Chase said. Cain spoke on how graduate students are not considered employees, but they are held to the same standards as faculty.
