Petition for Immediate Medical Fund

This year, Columbia unilaterally changed our health insurance options, opting for a single plan for all Columbia students with a 10% coinsurance. We demand the university set-up an immediate fund to offset medical costs incurred by workers who were previously enrolled in the 100 plan and bargain with our union to provide comprehensive healthcare.  — SIGN THE PETITION NOW — 


The National Labor Relations Board recently published a proposed rule that would take away graduate student workers’ right to collective bargaining at private universities if applied. The proposed rule is a desperate, politically-motivated attempt to reverse the 2016 Columbia decision and stifle the unprecedented momentum of the graduate worker union movement.
