For anyone interested, there's been a growing push for a unionization of graduate student employees. Even NYU has done more than Columbia.

Here's one graduate student's story. To me, the frightening part is not Columbia's policy or the cost to this one student, but that the existence of a union might have made it readily apparent that this would be an issue for the student.

Edit 5/11: Here's the site for getting involved:

Edit 8/24: Yesterday the NLRB ruled that grad students do have a right to unionize here at Columbia (and other private universities).

Wow, thanks for sharing this Mitchell; I was completely unaware. Is there some type of petition going around that you know of?
