Position Statements


As a labor organization, TUGSA is intimately involved in raising awareness and advocating for a host of national issues ranging from equal rights to protections for workers. While TUGSA is barred legally from making political contributions using your union dues, members have often felt that TUGSA should present clear positions on issues that influence University life. Here you will find position statements, letters, blogs and other noteworthy literature that we hope will inspire you to become more active in your community.
