Yesterday we had our first meeting with CU on a university-wide policy on bullying, per our contract. We’re excited to get started, but we know we have a long way to go. Tell @Columbia we need a timely, transparent, and enforceable policy against bullying https://bit.ly/3A576sK

When @UofCalifornia refuses to recognize @sruuaw by claiming that thousands of Fellows and Trainees are solely students, not employees, they are coming for your rights and ours. Defend their rights and sign this petition → https://www.bit.ly/SRUpetition #SameResearchSameRights

We need unions bc “There’s a power dynamic in science where your adviser has complete control of your career,” says @SRUUAW grad worker James Boocock in @theprogressive “In those cases, it can be very scary to challenge that individual.” #AcademicTwitter https://progressive.org/magazine/grad-student-union-levin/

Congrats to @SW_Columbia-5 years ago they changed labor law & won the right for TAs/researchers at private universities to unionize. Since then unions formed@ @HarvardUniv @TheNewSchool @BrownUniversity @BostonCollege @uofchicago more @hgsuuaw @BCGEU_UAW @SENSUAW #AcademicTwitter
