Graduate Labor Organization (GLO), formerly known as Stand Up for Graduate Student Employees (SUGSE), is the union of graduate workers that has fought for rights and protections at Brown University since 2014. As researchers, teachers, and mentors at Brown, graduate workers are vital to the everyday working of the university.
