Graduate teachers at Yale voted to form a union with Local 33–UNITE HERE in February.
Instead of coming to the negotiating table, Yale is trying to run out the clock until President Trump appoints his own anti-worker picks to the National Labor Relations Board who can take back the teachers’ rights to organize and crush the union.
The graduate teachers are fighting back and participating in an indefinite fast in protest of Yale’s refusal to negotiate and to take action on issues of widespread sexual harassment and racism on campus.
Each day through Yale’s graduation on May 22, graduate teachers will keep up the pressure on the university. If we make our demand loud enough, Yale won’t be able to tell them to wait any more. Take action: click here to tell Yale’s president to negotiate with their union graduate teachers now.
Together we will demonstrate that we are done waiting.
