Graduate workers vote to continue strike through April 27

The Indiana Graduate Workers Coalition-United Electrical Workers overwhelmingly voted in favor of extending the strike

The vote was 967-27, according to a Twitter post from IGWC-UE’s account. 

Graduate workers have been demanding union recognition from the IU administration. The strike first started April 13.

Protestors have picketed over the last week throughout campus at locations such as Sample Gates, the Chemistry Building and Ballantine Hall.  

IU announced it will form a task force to look into graduate student education Monday. 

The Bloomington Faculty Council voted in favor of the graduate workers in a meeting last week. 

Graduate workers at IU have been asking for better pay and lower mandatory fees since at least 2019.
