Letter to the Editor: Setting the Record Straight

To the Editor:

I write in response to “In Support of a Fair Unionization Election” to make clear that student voter eligibility requirements were determined jointly by the University and the Harvard Graduate Students Union-United Auto Workers (HGSU-UAW) before the November election on unionization.

Prior to that election, the University and the HGSU-UAW reached an election agreement that defined which students would be part of a bargaining unit and therefore eligible to vote.

A majority of students omitted from the voter list voted anyway, and their ballots will be counted in the final tally.

Paul Curran is the Director of Labor and Employee Relations at Harvard University.
