Brandeis Grad Students Vote to Unionize

Graduate students at Brandeis University voted to form a union affiliated with Service Employees International Union, 88 to 34, they announced Tuesday. Graduate students at Tufts University also are expected to hold a union vote this month, following a decision last year by the National Labor Relations Board saying that graduate teaching and research assistants on private campuses have the right to form unions. Brandeis students will join SEIU’s Faculty Forward, which already represents about 4,000 non-tenure-track faculty members in the Boston area. The university said in a statement that it looks forward "to working with the SEIU to reach a collective bargaining agreement for Ph.D. students who teach, who are vitally important members of our community."
