CGSU Congratulates Graduate Workers of Columbia on Union Victory

We’re writing with some great news. Columbia grads voted resoundingly for union representation: 1602 to 623!

Congratulations and thanks to Columbia grads for kicking off the recent national movement for private university grad students to organize unions. This victory should inspire us to double our efforts towards our own goal of union representation in the Spring semester. But we won’t get there without your help!

Please email, call 607 319-0835, or visit to find out how you can get involved to help organize your own field. We need grads talking to other grads in each department to ensure a solid victory so we can get to the bargaining table and negotiate a contract at Cornell to address our workplace concerns!
