Columbia University faces Strike

GSEU is planning a strike for the week of April 18, and Trade Workers Union 241, which covers facilities maintenance workers, is in the midst of contract negotiations with Columbia. The GSEU strike will come a year after its month-long strike for recognition last April, an event that saw some expression of inter-union unity; UAW 2110 partook in a day-long sympathy strike for the GSEU cause. But as David Wolach, a GSEU organizer in the audience, put it, the more the “our cause is your cause” philosophy is embraced, the more likely GSEU and other unions will succeed.
