United Faculty of Florida - Florida State University - Graduate Assistants United (UFF-FSU-GAU) represents and advocates for the interests of its members and all graduate assistants at Florida State University. GAU was founded in 2008 and is the only legally recognized collective bargaining agent for graduate assistants at FSU and seeks to improve working conditions and defend the working rights of all GAs. GAU's first contract was ratified in the Fall of 2010, ensuring that all GAs across the FSU campus receive fair and equitable treatment as students and employees. Since this first contract was negotiated with the university administration,  we have increased the minimum stipend twice, secured an across-the-board performance raise, increased the health insurance subsidy, secured Family Medical Leave for all GAs, and advocated for the rights of students, as individuals and as groups, through the grievance process.

The current goals of GAU are to meet and exceed the benefit levels enjoyed by graduate students at other universities with preeminent status. Specifically, we want to achieve 100% health insurance reimbursement subsidies and 100% tuition and fees payment for all eligible GAs.  By coming together, we can make improvements in our lives and do much more together than we can alone. Help us make FSU competitive with other universities in the state of Florida.  More members equals more leverage equals better benefits.

Important Information

Bargaining Survey

One of the big goals for this year has been to set up a survey that will poll GA's opinions and needs. This survey will allow us to serve YOU better and represent you accurately when we meet with FSU administrators. Our new bargaining sessions are coming up fast, so we're releasing this survey to all GAs. If you are a FSU graduate assistant, please click on the following link to take the survey:
This survey is quite long but all the questions are necessary to evaluate our goals and GA feelings about the current professional environment at FSU. We hope that you all will take the time to provide us with your feedback.
