As an alum of the Graduate School, I am writing to express my support for graduate students coming together to form a union. A graduate student union has the potential to positively impact the experience of many students because it can counterbalance structures that can oftentimes create unhealthy or abusive environments for students by establishing an effective system for accountability. While this will most greatly benefit the most vulnerable, I believe that every graduate student stands to gain in terms of his or her power, protection, and experience at Duke. Unfortunately, some graduate students falsely worry that unionization will cause them to lose out, feeling that they currently possess more privileges than their peers.
