Undergrads Working to Mobilize Parents

From Studnts4GoodStuf@topica.com:

Howdy Folks,
In order to make this strike short and effective we need tons of parent support as well as undergrad support. With that in mind, here is a form letter for parents that can be sent to Sexton. His email is john.sexton@nyu.edu. Please have your parents attach their name as well as any comments and send this in. The more parent pressure we can muster the better!

Dear President Sexton,
As a parent of an NYU student, I am very concerned about the graduate assistant strike. My child's education is of paramount importance to me, and I am worried about the disruption that the strike is causing. Our family's tuition dollars should be used to improve my child's education, not to bust a union. I urge you to bargain fairly with GSOC/UAW Local 2110.

A big shout out goes to Dave Hancock. GAs (especially those who've been your TA) appreciate your efforts on our behalf. And he walks the picket line, folks!
