Strikes and Lockouts

NYU Graduate Student Strike 2005

In 2002, the GSOC won the first contract for graduate assistants at a private university. Their contract improved the lives of graduate students dramatically and was praised by the NYU administration. Now, thanks to a regressive Bush administration ruling, NYU is refusing to bargain a second contract with GSOC. GSOC members voted by a margin of 85% to strike for a new contract, and their strike began on November 9, 2005. NYU retaliated and GSOC later voted to suspend their strike. You can visit the GSOC website to learn about their struggle.
