Strike Payroll

Payroll Accounting Procedures for Graduate Student Workers During a Strike Period

The graduate student union (BUGWU) includes all graduate student workers who are engaging in research, teaching, or instructional work for the University. 

Our graduate student workers have the right to strike, but the University also has a legal right to withhold compensation from striking employees for the days they are on strike. The University intends to withhold pay from any graduate student workers who are on strike for the duration of the strike period. 

The below procedures outline our payroll accounting procedures for graduate student working hours during a strike period.

Hourly Graduate Student Workers

Payroll accounting for all hourly graduate student workers will remain the same during a strike period.
