    The National Labor Relations Board issued a decision on 23 August “that student assistants working at private colleges and universities are statutory employees covered by the National Labor Relations Act.” https://www.nlrb.gov/news-outreach/news-story/board-student-assistants-covered-nlra-0

    Please use this discussion space to add resources for those who wish to pursue unionization.

    Graduate students are precarious workers. They don’t always have the right circumstances to push for their labor rights like bargaining. What benefit can we expect from this verdict?
