Harvard graduate students have officially elected to join the Auto Workers union by a vote margin of almost 400. This comes after a 2016 NLRB ruling granting teaching and research assistants the legal status to organize.
Georgetown University has also agreed to let graduate students vote this spring on whether or not they wish to join the American Federation of Teachers. Workers at the University of Minnesota, on the other hand, have officially decided to drop their efforts to organize under the Service Employees after three years of effort.
In Louisiana, charter schools are still fighting to keep their independence from NLRB oversight with a case making its way up to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals.
