Late yesterday, the National Labor Relations Board granted Columbia’s withdrawal of the request for review.
This is a very exciting step forward. After postdoctoral researchers ratified Columbia’s proposed framework to bargain by 95% in accordance with the agreement, we are getting prepared to begin bargaining by February 25th.
Next week we will be hosting two town halls to answer any questions that postdoctoral researchers and associate researcher scientists and scholars have about the process, discuss next steps, and give everyone a chance to meet members of the newly elected bargaining committee.
