After a 27-day strike, the Harvard Graduate Student Union went back to work at the beginning of this month. The union, university, and a federal mediator have continued to meet for bargaining sessions since the end of the strike, but have yet to come to an agreement regarding any of the major contract provisions.

Over at the University of Chicago, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled this month that the university must recognize student library workers’ collective bargaining efforts. Student library workers voted to unionize in June of 2017.
