Since we have yet to receive any authoritative response from Columbia on our meeting with Dean Alonso last week, the GWC-UAW International Student Working Group has now started a petition to urge Columbia to do better and address our concerns.
International RAs and TAs play a critical role at Columbia and deserve not only fair compensation and benefits, but also more transparency and support when Columbia makes mistakes on things as important as its tax withholding to the IRS.
Everyone is invited to sign the petition, international and domestic students. Please forward the petition to your colleagues and friends.
For background on the current tax problems faced by international RAs and TAs, read here.
If you would like to get involved in this or any other aspect of the GWC-UAW campaign, send us an email.
