Bloggers rally behind striking NYU grad students

News & Politics

Classes are resuming at NYU, but many of the graduate students are still on strike. The students are fighting for the university to recognize their union, which it had for years until the National Labor Relations Board ruled that graduate students at private universities aren't workers.

Now, the university has cut off fellowships for the striking TAs. (You know, like bosses do to their striking employees.)

The union has set up a Hardship Fund to help the strikers. This week, several major bloggers came out in support of the GSOC and urged their readers to contribute to the hardship fund: Chris Clarke, Bitch Ph.D., Henry Farrell of Crooked Timber, and Lawyers, Guns, and Money.
