Steward Districts

New 2017 Districting Layout

According to Article 10 of GEU Bylaws, for the purpose of steward representation, the bargaining unit shall be divided into a number of districts that together encompass every GA. Your District is determined by your academic program, though they are somewhat geographically clustered.

Possible changes to the the number of districts, their boundaries, and the number of Stewards representing each district shall be suggested by the Guide at least every two years in order to account for any changes in steward representation due to graduation, changes in enrollment, and departmental moves. At the first membership meeting of the 2017-2018 academic year, on September 23, 2017, the Executive Board voted to ratify districting changes recommended by the Guide. The new districts will be valid until the end of the 2018-2019 academic year, notwithstanding any need for additional reassessment due to major and sudden changes in the composition of the graduate student composition at UCONN.

Changes included in the new districting layout are as follows:

  1. Creation of two Districts representing Regional Campuses
  2. Moving the Kinesiology Department from District 3 to District 4
  3. Moving the Mathematics Department from District 2 to District 3
  4. Moving the Chemistry Department from District 4 to District 2
  5. Moving the Physics Department from District 2 to District 4
