For weeks, our colleagues on the bargaining committee have been at the table with admin negotiating our raise for next year. We took action together to show Brown that we were serious about meaningful compensation, and last week we finally reached a tentative agreement that brings us closer to fair pay. We won at minimum a 4.59% raise for all grads, on top of summer pay parity for Humanities and Social Sciences ultimately resulting in a 10.6% increase in HASS grads’ annual compensation!
We’re excited about this agreement, and now it’s up to all of us to vote on ratifying it. The vote will be open online for 24 hours starting Thursday, May 6th at noon EST. You can read the full agreement here.
We’ve also put together a pair of infographics below to help break down the agreement.
