Pay Regularity Working Group
The pay regularity working group exists to make sure grad student workers get paid on time. We're currently working on a proposal that would require Duke to pay first year students before they arrive on campus and help them with relocation costs. We are also pushing to shift all graduate students to a 12-month pay cycle and, ultimately, increase Ph.D. student stipends to the equivalent of $15 an hour. In the future, we'd also like to design a process by which grad students can seek redress for late or incomplete payments through the union.
