We have one shot at this election, which is why it is crucial for you to make your voice heard on election day and vote UNION YES. Every day, graduate workers at Johns Hopkins are already making clear that the majority of graduate workers want a union by signing the Vote Yes Pledge. We are uniting to demand payment on-time, every time; wages we can live on in Baltimore; and more. We are excited to win together!

We are Teachers and Researchers United

We are a movement of graduate student workers at Johns Hopkins University organizing a union in order to win improvements in our working conditions and demand dignity, respect, and a contract. From labs to classrooms, graduate workers at JHU keep the university running. As scholars and as teaching and research assistants, we exercise care and expertise in building the twin pillars of higher education: research and instruction.

We are affiliated with United Electrical, Radio, and Machine Workers (UE). We share their belief that unions are for everyone, and that a member-led and organized union is the best way to achieve wins for workers.
