A Message to NYU Graduate Students

If NYU continues in their actions to back away from recognizing the graduate student union, graduate students should just walk out. Universities can simply not function without graduate students. If you were to get, say, 75% of graduate students to stop grading, stop conducting research for their advisors, stop everything, I have to believe that you would win. Meanwhile, NYU is offering as compensation for no union to raise the graduate student yearly salary to $21,000. In New York City. Wow, thanks.
