WE (STILL) WON'T PAY. Today, after over three months without a response, we sent a follow-up email to UChicago administration demonstrating our steadfast commitment as hundreds of graduate workers continue to withhold their Student Services Fees until our demands are met ->

Meanwhile, this same university is threatening students who are behind on bogus "student service fee" payments with administrative leave, revoked health insurance, cancelled stipends, and withholding degrees. During a pandemic. In this economy.
The University’s endowment rose from $8.2 billion to $11.6 billion, marking a 37.6 percent increase—the University’s highest since the 1999–2000 period. chicagomaroon.com/article/20…

The last several weeks, since the tragedy that took the life of Shaoxiong “Dennis” Zheng, have been a time of deep pain, fear, and mourning on our campus that have led to difficult discussions about gun violence and public safety at UChicago and in our surrounding communities.

We are committed to providing GSU spaces and resources to members who wish to take time for collective mourning, engage in these discussions, and organize further around developing concrete demands for community-based safety measures.

As always, the members of the UChicago community that we have lost this year and those who have been harmed by violence across the South Side remain in our thoughts.

NEW: The biggest strike in America right now is happening at Columbia University, where 3,000 student workers are fighting for a livable wage, health benefits, and more. Columbia says it can't afford workers' demands — after its most lucrative year in 15 years.
