Graduate student employees help run the University of Alaska and we care deeply about our teaching and research. 

AGWA/UAW represents unionized graduate workers at UAA, UAF, and UAS in partnership with UAW.

Current Step: 1st Contract Ratified!

On May 1, 2024 we concluded a 24 hour ratification vote! Over the 24 hr vote, 70% of our unit voted to accept the contract that was tentatively agreed to by the UA and AGWA-UAW bargaining committees on April 30.

This came after over 200 people joined our "Protest for a Fair Contract" on 4/29 and graduate workers began camping out in front of the administrative building at the UAF campus on 4/30.
