Graduate Assistants at Georgetown Want Union Recognition

Graduate Assistants at Georgetown Want Union Recognition

Always look for the union label.

The left won’t be happy until all of academia is unionized.

Inside Higher Ed reports:

Georgetown Grad Assistants Seek Union Recognition

Graduate assistants at Georgetown University on Wednesday asked the institution to voluntarily recognize them as a labor union affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers. In a letter to campus President John DeGioia, graduate student organizers said they’d reached majority support for unionization and hoped that the university would begin to bargain a contract with them.

A number of other private institutions have challenged or signaled that they will challenge graduate assistant unions, following a 2016 decision from the National Labor Relations Board saying that graduate assistants on private campuses are employees, not students, and therefore entitled to collective bargaining.
