Amazing how similar these anti union talking points are to what we hear from our “progressive” and “inclusive” University administrations across the US.

And if truly supported our "the global community of students," it would let proceed with a fair union election. We have not forgotten how admins sent mass emails falsely implying visa status could be jeopardized by involvement/support of our union.

We support and strongly condemn the administration prosecuting and threatening to expel grad student Maya Little for anti-racist civil disobedience. This is a labor issue as it creates a racially hostile work environment. Follow for more.

This is a good deep look at the union campaigns in media. As explains, it's more or less the same professional concerns driving unionization as in the 1930's

The scope of labor organizing at universities must include every worker, whether they fit under an arbitrary distinction of 'academic' or not. We all serve to sustain higher education.

For consideration as the decision nears: historically, unions have helped integrate the workplace in the US. While Janus will affect all workers it will more adversely affect workers of color who are already more vulnerable in the workplace.

Q: How do we organize in difficult departments? A: Between the first and second election, we stopped doing random lab walkthroughs - they were not working. Instead we lessened the burden on each individual organizer and focused on organic, personal connections.

“It comes down to TRUST.” Harvard organizers had to leverage personal connections, trust building mechanisms, and widely available information and social media presence in languages other than English.

“At the end of the day, faculty have no stake in the issue. You likely do not have conversations with your advisor about pay and healthcare - those decisions are made higher up.”

Question from the audience: how do we deal with potential faculty retaliation for a student organizer’s belief about the union? A: That is a personal decision made by each organizer, in terms of understanding and maintaining their relationships with their advisors.

After their election victory, workers are energized - those who had been against the union are becoming engaged and running for the bargaining committee. Many see the potential for the union to bring positive change to all members
