Visualizing Graduate Assistants’ Workload
Olivia Wood, English
Olivia is tracking the workload of graduate assistants across job roles and departments. The data will be used to inform the Graduate Center PSC chapter’s negotiations around equitable workloads and fair labor practices, including negotiations in labor management meetings, grievance arbitration, and contract bargaining. While all workers in a given graduate assistant title (such as GAB) supposedly have equivalent workloads, it’s common knowledge that job responsibilities for graduate fellows can vary considerably in practice. The purpose of Olivia’s project is to determine exactly how much and where the inequities lie.
