Top 3 Reasons to Join WIGUT

1. Your Voice becomes Part of Ours

WIGUT is at the forefront of discussions and negotiations with the University Management to improve the total work package for all our various members. We encourage creative and innovate solutions, even as we remain strong advocates whilst working in a cooperative way. Your membership allows you to be part of that advocacy in ensuring your working conditions are to mutual benefit. 

2. Improving your University

Sometimes it takes just one voice to impart positive change for many. Be part of that one voice collective, as the Union in the spirit of collaboration and cooperation helps to advance the conversations at all management levels towards improving the University. Whether in matters of Career Path, or Tenure, or working conditions, you will find the imprint of WIGUT. Join us and be a positive contributor to the future of what is now your University.

3. Guarding Your Rights

As a matter of equitable treatment to all of our members, from entry level in the academic, senior administrative, and professional categories up to professorial rank, you enjoy certain assurances and benefits. At the very minimum you deserve clarity, fair treatment and an embracing environment free from harassment of any kind and free from discrimination in any form. When professional discourse between yourself and your supervisor(s) fails to resolve any infringements of these minimum standards, our grievance procedures and committee will seek resolution confidentially and as quickly as possible.
