Beginning in the 1970s, graduate, teaching, and research assistants in the various schools of the State University of New York (SUNY) decided it would be beneficial to form a union for graduate student employees. Though they were students, they were also employed as assistants in a variety of capacities at their respective SUNY schools and wanted the right to bargain with the state of New York for fair employment conditions. [1] The movement began at SUNY Buffalo in 1975 and showed great promise based on the number of signatures gathered from graduate assistants up until 1977. [2] However, the movement suffered a temporary setback over issues regarding New York State’s Taylor Law, which forbids public employees to strike in order to preserve “harmonious and cooperative relationships between government and its employees”; it is also intended to protect the best interests of the public by making sure that government operations function smoothly and without interruption. [3] The law specifically recognizes public employees’ right to organize, utilize grievance procedures, and obtain the aid of a relations board to help them resolve differences with employers provided the employees are part of a legally recognized union. SUNY Buffalo’s early attempts to unionize were unsuccessful because although the organizers signed affidavits that they would uphold the Taylor Law, they had been part of two strikes prior to that time. As a result, the SUNY Buffalo administration decided not to authorize the Graduate Student Employees Union (GSEU).[4]

Organizing attempts began again in earnest in the early 1980s. Statewide organization became a priority when the Public Employee Relations Board (PERB) explained that such action was necessary for the GSEU to gain legal recognition. [5] Therefore, the largest of the SUNY campuses—the four “university centers” of Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, and Stony Brook— became the hubs of activity for union organizers. Initially, the students did not wish to be affiliated with larger unions like United University Professions, wary of giving up any independence. [6] However, after working to swell their numbers for several years, members eventually voted in 1984 to associate with the Communications Workers of America (CWA) since such an alliance would greatly strengthen the GSEU’s bargaining power. [7]

Within months of coming under the wing of the CWA, the students decided to petition for a certification election that would allow graduate student employees to vote for or against unionization. After deliberating over the matter for two years, PERB decided in 1986 that the GSEU did not have the authority to vote on that issue. [8] PERB’s reluctance to grant legal recognition to the GSEU was due in large part to their doubt about graduate students’ status as state employees; they viewed the organizers as students first and employees second, which meant that PERB questioned the organizers’ right to bargain in the first place. [9]

PERB ultimately decided to allow the graduate student employees to vote on unionization in 1991, but only for teaching and graduate assistants (TA and GA). Research assistants were not considered eligible as per PERB’s existing rules, since they were (and still are) considered employees of the Research Foundation, not of SUNY. Believing that this was a step in the right direction, and that they could better advocate for the rights of research assistants if graduate and teaching assistants were legally recognized, the students went ahead and voted 6 to 1 to unionize. March 1994 brought the union its first contract after a year of negotiation, followed by two pay raises, creation of grievance procedures, and a health-care plan for student assistants, their spouses, and their dependents. [10] Rights such as grievance procedures did not come immediately, however, and the GSEU had to negotiate new contracts more than once before achieving some of the union benefits it wanted.

Completely student-run, the GSEU has a statewide executive committee that oversees union activity around New York. The elected officers take charge of procedures like policy planning and collective bargaining, but they are helped by elected officers of the steering committees at the SUNY schools, particularly the four university centers. Stewards on each campus are the eyes and ears of the steering committees and act as liaisons between the student body and steering committees. Members can be full or associate, depending on whether they are graduate/teaching assistants or not. The constitution, by-laws, and other policies of the GSEU are the products of the students themselves and have been amended as necessary over the years.[11]

In the winter of 2001, the members of GSEU— whose division had previously been recognized as Local 1188—merged with CWA Local 1112 (Telephone Traffic Union Upstate Workers) and CWA Local 1104 (Telecommunications) in order to gain more bargaining power. All three entities would then be known as CWA Local 1104, with all the bargaining power that such a union entails, but without having to give up the administrative structures and authorities set forth by the groups’ original charters. Original Local 1104 members became known as the Telecommunications Division, Local 1112 members became known as the Operator Services Division, and the old 1188 members became the Education Division. The organization of each division remained the same for three years, after which the CWA Local 1104 Executive Board could vote to make changes if necessary.[12]

As of spring 2010, the Graduate Student Employees Union was still active around the SUNY campuses, encouraging members to speak out on issues regarding TA and GA rights, and continuing to petition the governor and his colleagues on topics like tuition increases and fair wages. Research assistants, particularly at SUNY Stony Brook, have kept up their efforts to be recognized as official union members. In April 2010 the they brought their issues to New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo and United States Senator Kirsten Gillibrand in the hope of garnering support for a union contract, a victory they hope will be forthcoming.[13]

Scope & Content Note

Back to table of contents

The collection arrived at the archives without a set order to the records, so the archivist imposed an arrangement on the records as they were processed. Many of the records reflect the activities of the GSEU statewide executive committee, which oversees the functions of the various branches of the union around New York State. Those records comprise a series of their own and mainly consist of administrative files such as correspondence, meeting minutes, activity planning, elections, and instructional information on how to organize. The executive committee held their meetings around the state, so material from them could appear on paper with letterheads from any of the center schools.

Each of the SUNY center schools makes up its own subseries under the heading of "Administrative Files.” These subseries mirror some of the content from the statewide executive files, mainly correspondence and meeting minutes. There are also files dealing with day-to-day matters like mailing lists and local campus activities. The material from SUNY Buffalo by far outnumbers the material from Albany, Binghamton, and Stony Brook, which is likely because the GSEU movement was born in Buffalo. Therefore, the papers originating from that school are almost as numerous as those of the statewide executive committee.

This collection also contains papers documenting the founding of the GSEU: various financial materials (though not very many, considering that the bulk of the collection spans about seventeen years); publications from the SUNY campuses, especially from the unions themselves; and many subject files covering topics that were not deemed strictly administrative or applied to more than one location (and therefore were not filed under a specific school). Topics include issues with Univera Healthcare, protests of student fees, parking problems, and much more. There are also membership files concerning grievances on behalf of individuals, member applications, and bargaining surveys; these are restricted as there are confidentiality issues with each type of document.

There is also a selection of memorabilia that includes buttons, bumper stickers, t-shirts, posters, and photographs. Almost all of the photos came to the archives without labels or dates; therefore they are identified as clearly as a survey of the pictures would allow. The photos are bundled according to the way they arrived at the archives; the archivist placed any loose photos in clear protective sleeves.

Correspondence in each of the series is arranged according to the way the letters, e-mails, and memos were submitted to the archives: items that arrived in labeled folders were rehoused in acid-free folders and labeled similarly or exactly as the GSEU labeled them. The archivist placed items that arrived unfoldered in acid-free folders reading “Correspondence— general” due to time constraints on item-level processing.

Approximately three cubic feet of unfoldered material experienced water damage before coming to the archives; those papers are wrinkled and may have blurred words or staining from colored paper. Most of the items were still entirely or mainly legible. The archivist photocopied a few that sustained mold damage and disposed of the originals.

Series Descriptions

Back to table of contents

Series 1: Founding Documents, 1971-1998, .6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

This series contains early drafts of the GSEU constitution and by-laws as well as some early correspondence with attorneys who provided advice on proper structuring of the group and wording of their official documents. There are also affiliation agreements between the GSEU and New York State, an agreement between the GSEU and CWA, histories of the GSEU, and some basic union fact sheets.

Series 2: Statewide Executive Committee, 1979-2000, undated, 3.0 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

The majority of the documents in this series originated from meetings and activities conducted by the executive committee alone or in conjunction with the officers and members of the individual school branches. However, there is one folder of central school reports that preferably should have been filed in the specific series for those schools (ie. Buffalo organizing reports in the Buffalo series), but they are physically attached so that one school’s report ends and the next begins on the same page. Those few documents are therefore filed together in this series. Executive committee meetings seemed to be held at various locations around the state and it was not always clear whether material originated from executive action or steering committee action; therefore there may be executive material filed in the school series and vice versa. Other papers clearly belong either to GSEU school chapters or to the statewide executive committee and are filed accordingly. This series has many folders of meeting minutes and correspondence, but is supplemented by material on how to organize/mobilize, delegate assemblies, and steward information.

Series 3: Administrative Files-- Albany/Binghamton/Buffalo/Stony Brook, 1974-2000, undated, 3.2 cubic ft., Arranged in subseries by school, then alphabetically within each school.

This series is divided into subseries by SUNY center school; each contains meeting minutes, correspondence, organizing reports, contact lists and other papers that show the daily and monthly operations of the SUNY school divisions of the GSEU Local 1104. There is considerable evidence of the connection between statewide executive committee members and the local branches of the GSEU as they worked to solve issues including parking fees, technology fees, tuition waivers, fair wage, and more. As noted above, there are considerably more files for SUNY Buffalo than there are for the three other schools, probably due in large part to Buffalo’s role as the birthplace of the union movement.

Series 4: Financial Papers, 1982-2000, undated, .8 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

This series is a mix of statewide and individual school financial papers. Each folder is labeled accordingly so researchers can tell at a glance if a folder is related to a specific school or if it is executive committee information. Topics include cash flow reports, expense sheets, tax information, and budgeting guidelines. There is a select amount of material for each school and the executive committee, but no one category has a large amount of financial data, which overall is very scarce for this group.

Series 5: Publications, 1982-2000, undated, .6 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

These are a variety of newsletters published by the individual GSEU branches at each SUNY school as well as non-union publications that featured union news. There are also two folders of the GSEU Notes, which originated with the statewide executive committee and changed in appearance frequently over the years. Runs of any given publication are sporadic; there are none which have every issue. Of particular note for missing issues are: the Buffalo Times, the Graduate Quill, the GSEU Notes, the NYS Student Leader, and the Union Times.

Series 6: Subject Files, 1969-2001, undated, 5.0 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically.

Contains material from affiliated groups including the Graduate Student Organization (GSO), Student Association of the State University of New York (SASU), and Staff Association, all of which worked closely with the GSEU on matters of mutual interest. The success of the SUNY GSEU caused the local 1104 to become a model for organizers from schools in other states; the archivist retained any files from those schools that showed evidence of contact with the SUNY GSEU in this collection. Projects and causes that affected the group statewide can be found in this series, such as campaigning against sweatshop labor used for SUNY merchandise and the Citizen’s Mobilization efforts of the mid-1990s that protested the state budget situation. Many of the files related to healthcare and health insurance for student employees are in this series as well.

Series 7: Photos and Memorabilia, undated, .6 cubic ft., Arranged by format.

Series 7 contains an assortment of artifacts accumulated or created by the GSEU. Most are undated, such as the t-shirts and buttons, but are still a good representation of the opinions and actions of the group as a whole. Box one has most of the three-dimensional items while box two houses all of the photos. Only one package of pictures was labeled specifically by GSEU members with the event and date. Finally, there are two oversized folders with GSEU posters, some professionally printed while others are handmade.

Series 8: Membership Papers: Applications, Grievances/Improper Practice Charges, Surveys, 1983-1999, undated, 3.0 cubic ft., Arranged alphabetically by type. (RESTRICTED)

This series contains an array of documents that represent individual member information of a sensitive nature. The applications, grievances, and surveys are from all four SUNY center schools.
