Ivy Strike

Labor, Law, Politics

Graduate student teachers at Yale and Columbia universities are on strike to demand the right to form a union (recently denied to private schools by the NLRB):

Graduate teachers at Bush’s alma mater, Yale, together with graduate teachers at Columbia University are fighting back against this ruling. Refusing to cede their internationally recognized human right to form unions, these graduate teachers are demanding that their universities voluntarily recognize them outside of US labor law, which has become more anti-worker under the Bush administration. Teaching assistants from Yale and Columbia will stage the first ever joint strike in the Ivy League, April 18-22.
