The UW Teaching Assistants Association (TAA) won a raise of almost 5% due to their “Pay Us Back” Campaign in the 2012-2013 school year. Actions included an e-mail campaign to the Chancellor, posters around campus, and Op-Ed pieces in the newspaper. Then the TAA continued their campaign and won an additional 2% raise recently.
This is the kind of success we all need throughout the state agencies and UW. Let's organize a “Pay Us Back” campaign too!
