Another Academic Unionization Campaign

According to today's Chronicle of Higher Education, staff at the Montpelier, VT campus of the Union Institute and University voted last week to form a union (37 of 41 elligible voters were in favor). Issues important to the new union members include participation in decision making, pay increases, and vacation/sick leave. The administration has officially stated its intention to bargain in good faith.

GSOC is perhaps the flagbearer for this movement of unionization of academic employees, but we are not at all alone. Everywhere you look there are academic employees fighting for the right to unionize, just as we are.
