Members of Harvard's graduate student unionization effort will meet with University officials within the next 10 days, following the National Labor Relations Board's recent ruling.
Even after last week’s landmark National Labor Relations Board ruling on graduate student unionization, the legal path forward for universities is far from clear.
The 3-1 decision handed down Tuesday marks a significant milestone for the unionization effort at Harvard, which began in April 2015 and has since grown in size and sophistication despite opposition from the University administration.
After partnering with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, the five Doctor of Science programs at the School of Public Health will be replaced by a singular Ph.D. in Population Health Sciences.
Having concluded a year of lengthy discussion about graduate student unionization, leaders of the Graduate Student Council say they hope to keep dialogue open among graduate students as they look to the next academic year.
