After over three years of legal delays by the Columbia University administration, a majority of graduate workers voted 93% (1832 to 136) to authorize their bargaining committee to call a strike and after a missed strike deadline we went on strike from  April 24 to April 30. For a week over 1500 graduate workers went on strike and picketed our campus. We will strike again unless Columbia agrees to bargain.

Read letters we have sent the Board of Trustees here: April 16, 2018 | June 1, 2018 | September 18, 2018
