Student Strikers at Columbia U. Demand Millions, Allegedly Commit Physical Assaults

Student Strikers at Columbia U. Demand Millions, Allegedly Commit Physical Assaults

“Yesterday’s Morningside campus protest by the Student Workers of Columbia-UAW included instances of physical harassment against faculty, students, and staff.”

The strike is being supported by socialist activists, because of course it is.

Campus Reform reports:

‘#CUonStrike’: Columbia student workers on strike for $140 million in school funds

Amid ongoing calls for increased student-employee compensation, student protests at Columbia University Wednesday resulted in “physical harassment against faculty” and staff, according to an email obtained by Campus Reform.    

Provost Mary C. Boyce sent the following message Thursday:

“Yesterday’s Morningside campus protest by the Student Workers of Columbia-UAW included instances of physical harassment against faculty, students, and staff. These individuals were attempting to go to work, pursue their studies, or enter or exit their dormitories, and several incurred injuries when they sought to enter campus. No matter our differences at the bargaining table, violence has no place in this process, and we denounce these actions in the strongest possible terms.”

But also on Dec. 9, the Ivy League school gave in to the Student Workers of Columbia-United Auto Workers (SCW-UAW) union’s demands for increased pay.

SWC-UAW’s 2021 Bargaining Framework, which the group was advocating for during this week’s protests, included demands that totaled $140 million, according to Columbia Spectator. 

The demands included higher payroll compensation of $45,000 and $35,500 for students on 12-month and 9-month appointments across all programs, which close in number to the Columbia’s Dec. 9 concessions.

Yesterday’s proposed compensation plan that includes the workers’ request for rates of $43,621 and $37,716 for 12- and 9-month appointments, $42,766 and $37,074 for workers not on appointment, and an increased stipend rate of 3%.

The hourly rate is set to increase to $20 per hour in January 2002 and raise to $22 per hour by 2024. Dental plans and support funds were added to health benefit packages, and childcare subsidies for children under the age of 6 will rise to $4,500 with the intent of increasing to $5,000 the following year.

But can you fight a revolution in those yoga pants, Brendan?

How many arrests were made?

Try this in Texas, Boris.

Physical assault. G. They’re learning to be good union drones at a young age.

Expulsion, massive expulsion, with prejudice, of any student committing any act of violence, is the only answer.

Too bad the leftists that run Che University will just cave to the socialist children’s demands.

So their union is Student Workers of Columbia-United Auto Workers (SCW-UAW) . How did the UAW get involved? Are they producing cars on campus?

That salary is absurd for a student worker. There are people with 4 year degrees who don’t make 35k in 12 months let alone 9 months.
