Become a Member of GAU!
Stand up for your rights!
Stand up and be Counted!
Our union is only as strong as its members. Becoming a signed member of GAU demonstrates that you want to join with fellow Graduate Assistants at URI for a stronger voice for economic security, good benefits, and improved working conditions. As a member, you will have the right to attend union meetings, serve on union committees, run for a position on the executive board, vote for union officers, and apply to the grand fund for conference funding assistance. Becoming a member of our union does not increase the amount of dues you are required to pay. All Grad Assistants at URI pay the same amount- 1.4%- to support our union.
Becoming a member of Graduate Assistants United is easy! Simply download, sign and return a membership card to our office in 307 Roosevelt Hall either by interoffice mail, dropping by our office, or scanning and emailing your completed membership card to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, digital signatures cannot be accepted.
