Minnesota TA’s Reject Union

By a substantial margin, graduate students at the University of Minnesota have voted down a plan to create a union of teaching and research assistants.
GradTRAC issued a statement noting that the union drive won more votes than any previous effort. “Our growing support sends a clear message to the administration that graduate employees endorse our program for quality, affordable health care; fair salaries; annual raises and full fee waiver; job security; value and respect for our work; fair treatment for all RA’s and TA’s regardless of citizenship.”
