In a huge victory graduate workers at Columbia gave a booming #gradunionyes. This after the university denied even recognizing their graduate teaching and research assistants as workers. Yes, not only are graduate workers at Columbia workers, but more importantly, now they are organized workers.
It is the FIRST win for a graduate worker union at a private university won through an official NLRB election. Now they stand 3,500 strong.
This is BIG.
