The Graduate Students' Union 1983-84:
A position paper

Written by the Graduate Students’ Union (GSU) in 1983-84, this position paper stated the intentions of the recently formed organization. The aims enumerated were to advance the interests of CUNY graduate students as employees (or prospective employees), to work in concert with the Graduate Center's Doctoral Student Council (DSC), and to press for the improvement of the conditions of adjuncts. The position paper also claimed that part-time employees needed their own representation outside of the PSC and, for the first time, the intent to start a decertification campaign was written about and circulated.
