Commentary: Nobody Wins if Graduate Students Can't Organize

from The Chronicle of Higher Education

Dennis M. Hogan, a doctoral student in comparative literature at Brown University, writes: "The National Labor Relations Board announced last week that it plans to propose a rule this fall that will establish whether graduate-student workers are covered by federal labor laws that grant union rights.

This development, part of a larger movement by the Trump administration to defeat labor unions once and for all, might be viewed by some college administrators as a victory. If it is, it’s a Pyrrhic one. To retain the moral authority of the university (and keep militant labor strikes off their campus), they should see the proposal for what it is and reject it." more
