Yale Alumni United
Welcome to Yale Alumni United. We are a group of proud Yale alumni who have become concerned about the ongoing effots of GESO to unionize graduate students at Yale. This site is our way of making our voice heard against the short-sighted organizers who put unionization ahead of a cooperative relationship with the Yale administration.
It is our position that graduate students are just that: students. The educational relationship should not be burdened by union interference. Graduate students choose to come to Yale, knowing what bargain Yale is offering. That bargain includes a free world-class education, a $18,000+ annual stiped, free comprehensive healthcare, and more. If a prospective student doesn't like Yale's offer then they are free to attend graduate school somewhere else.
Learn about why unionization is bad for grad students, bad for undergraduates, bad for the community, and bad for Yale.
