The Columbia Justice Lab Stands With Graduate Student Workers

March 17, 2021

As members of the Justice Lab at Columbia University, we stand in solidarity with the over 3,000 graduate students who are members of the Graduate Workers of Columbia University (GWC-UAW Local 2110).

As fellow employees of this university, we support our graduate student colleagues who are fighting for reasonable compensation and basic protections against harassment. The Justice Lab values the talent and perspectives that these student workers bring to our organization and the campus community as a whole. Graduate workers have been a particularly integral part of the Lab’s impact and culture since our founding. We strongly urge the university to provide its student workers with a fair union contract — one that provides for the better conditions and health care that every working person deserves.
