Yale Grad Students Fasting To Win Union Negotiations With SchoolThe graduate students have been trying for years to get Yale to recognize their union, but the university has refused.
Last August, the National Labor Relations Board found that graduate students who assist in teaching and research at private universities are employees and have the right to unionize. Six days later, the Yale organizers filed their petitions to unionize.
In January, the regional office of the NLRB ordered elections, which were held in February. Eight departments voted to unionize including students from the departments of English, geology and geophysics, history, history of art, math and sociology. Only the physics department voted it down.
