As the University intensifies its last-minute, heavy-handed efforts to convince us to vote no, we are proud to announce that United States Senator Bernie Sanders has sent Columbia RAs and TAs a personal message of hope that we vote “yes” in our historic election.


It is encouraging to know that Bernie is on our side. Unlike our administrators, who are afraid of a more democratic university, Bernie clearly understands the virtues of collective bargaining as a democratic and fair process.

Also, check out our new Vote Yes page on the GWC-UAW website, including a statement from GWC-UAW supporters all across campus encouraging our colleagues to vote yes. Send us an email with your thoughts and suggestions on additional information we can provide.
