We have the right to strike. Columbia also has the right to not pay us for the work we don’t do while on strike. In the event that Columbia cuts our pay for the time we are on of a strike, postdocs and ARSs who complete our strike duties and are UAW members will be eligible for $500 per week of strike pay.
- Can Columbia withhold my healthcare benefits if I’m on strike?
- Can the University hire replacements for the postdocs/ARSs who strike?
