On December 13, members of Graduate Students United delivered the #gradlaborcounts petition to the Chicago office of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The delivery was preceded by a piece of street theater, in which grad student workers implored the NLRB to wake up out of its coma so that it can perform its duties of ruling on cases such that filed by grad students at New York University.
You can also see photos of the action here (link).
Remember, it’s not too late to sign the petition! The #gradlaborcounts site will be open for more signitures until the end of the year, when the NLRB will lose its quorum with board member Craig Becker’s term ending.
