Graduate Labor Organization (GLO) is the union of graduate student employees at Brown University. Our Union was built upon the foundational work of Stand Up for Graduate Students (SUGS), which formed in 2014 and fought for rights and protections at Brown University. As researchers, teachers, and mentors at Brown, graduate workers are vital to the everyday working of the university. Through collective bargaining and collective action, we advocate for the needs of a diverse student body, fight against discrimination in all its forms, and nurture a caring community that supports the personal and professional lives of all student workers.
