"Like their counterparts at Yale, Columbia, Brown, and other campuses, however, the graduate students have complained that they're often used as little more than an ever expandable pool of cheap labor, and therefore in need of union protection.

NYU's current fracas threatens to be the worst so far." Read the rest of the article.

This article is terrific: they picked up on the grievances, Blackboard, the union's centrality in the current level of our stipends...even the thinking behind the "nerds" moniker.
So how can we get this distributed even further?
