Jessica Sills started this petition to Arizona State University ASU Student Workers and

As one of the more than 11,000 student workers at Arizona State University, we take great pride in our work as employees and as Sun Devils. We love it here at ASU, where a number of us will work each year of our education.

However, most of us make less than a livable wage of $15 an hour. Additionally, because ASU has decided that they do not want to offer tuition waivers or benefits to their student workers, the university does not allow students to work more than 25 hours per week. This is restricting our ability to afford not only our education, but also our living situations, as the Phoenix area has the fastest growing rent prices in the country. We believe this is unfair to us and prevents us from excelling at our jobs and in our education. 

We are seeking to form a worker's union in order to have a representative body of democratically-elected volunteers who would seek to improve these conditions. This union would work on the behalf of all student workers here at ASU now and for years to come to ensure that we are always treated and compensated fairly for our work.

By signing this petition, you are affirming that you and your fellow student workers deserve to not have to worry whether or not you can afford to attend school, whether or not you'll be able to afford rent. By signing this petition, you are reclaiming the value of your labor by moving towards unionizing the student worker body.

We love ASU and that's why we want to ensure its greatness by guaranteeing a livable wage and the possibility of benefits for the students who make it such an incredible university.

*****IMPORTANT***** When signing you must use your ASU email address so we can verify that you are a student worker. ONLY student workers can sign, though you can help us by sharing this petition!
