Student Workers

Grinnell College makes every effort to maintain strong partnerships with the unions on campus. The Union of Grinnell Student Dining Workers (UGSDW) has the exclusive authority to represent student workers who are members of the bargaining unit in negotiations with the College over terms and conditions of employment, such as wages, hours, and terms and conditions of work.

Student workers are defined as all degree-seeking individuals who are, simultaneously (1) enrolled as undergraduate students, full-time or part-time, at Grinnell College and (2) employed by Grinnell College as non-exempt, hourly employees.

The term “student workers” does not include (1) students whose sole “employment” relationship with Grinnell College is an internship, research fellowship, Mentored Advanced Project, or an equivalent relationship, such as externally grant-funded positions, (2) students who were formerly, but are not longer, enrolled as undergraduate students at Grinnell College, or (3) students who were formerly, but are no longer, non-exempt hourly employees of Grinnell College.
