In New York City, 3,000 graduate workers are on strike at Columbia University. The union of teaching and research assistants is demanding a fair wage, better health insurance and proper mechanisms for addressing harassment and discrimination. The student workers say Columbia refuses to negotiate a fair contract even as the school’s assets increased by $3.3 billion over the past year. Columbia has threatened to withhold pay and stipends from the striking workers.
