Teaching and Graduate Assistants are concurrently graduate students at Stony Brook University and employees of New York State. As students, TAs and GAs are required to pay university fees despite any tuition waivers that are associated with their funding. This dynamic essentially reduces the salary of TAs and GAs through charging fees at their workplace. The GSEU advocates on behalf of TAs and GAs, and therefore takes the position that GSEU members are employees first and, therefore, shouldn't have to pay university fees.
Please help the SUNY Stony Brook GSEU and RA Union collect data about how RAs, TAs and GAs use the university fees by completing the survey below!
