Source: Graduate Students At Columbia Try To Bargain As A Union

<A year after graduate students at Columbia University formed a union, the administration refuses to bargain with them. Julie Kushner of the United Auto Workers talks with NPR's Scott Simon.>

SIMON: <...> And let me quote the Provost John Coatsworth who says, "The relationship of graduate students to the faculty that instruct them must not be reduced to ordinary terms of employment." How would you respond to that?

KUSHNER: Well, I think that in every workplace, there are special conditions that govern the particulars of that industry.<...> But that doesn't stop the fact that they're working.
