GSOC updates

Recent GSOC supporters who refused to cross the picket line include:

  • Ted Kulongoski, Governer of Oregon, refused to cross the picket line for an event at the NYU law school
  • The CEO of Cabrini Hospital and the President of GHI-HMO refused to cross the picket line for an event at the Wagner School
  • As noted in the previous post, the Flaherty International Film Seminar withdrew its sponsorship from a program to be held at Cantor Film Center

If you are looking for a way to get involved, the Reverend Michael Szpak, is working on building a network of clergy members and other religious leaders committed to social justice who will campaign to condem NYU's union-busting tactics. Reverend Szpak can be contacted via the GSOC email address. For more information abotu Reverend Szpak, read him talking about faith and labor in the United Methodist blog.

At the GSOC website, you can view solidarity letters from
· UCATS Local 3882 (the union for clerical, administrative and technical staff at NYU)
· UAW Local 2865 (the graduate employee union of the University of California)
· The Post-Graduate Students' Society of McGill University
· David Newby (President, Wisconsin state AFL-CIO)
· Charlie King (NY State Attorney General candidate, NYU Law alum)
· AFT (American Federation of Teachers)
· AAUP (American Association of University Professors
· TAA/AFT 3220 (University of Wisconsin, Madison)
· UAW Local 4121 (University of Washington)
· History Graduate Student Association (Duke University)
· Gewerkschaft Erziehung und Wissenschaft (German Union for Education and Science)

Nerds look forward to seeing our loyal readers tomorrow at 4 pm in front of Bobst Library for the labor rally!
