Carrots and Sticks

Early in the strike, the NYU administration offered a carrot to those workers who were most exploited at NYU: TAs teaching more than one stand-alone course per semester were given a reduction to one stand-alone course maximums--in the hopes that these workers would go back to work greatful for this important but insufficient change. But it turns out that this change may not be applied equally, and may only be temporary, particularly for the TAs in the Expository Writing program.

The Columbia Spectator published an article yesterday about the need for a graduate employee union there and the connections between the Columbia unionization effort, administrative anti-union tactics, and GSOC.
