Graduate students at Columbia University are on the verge of a strike over the university’s refusal to bargain with their union, Auto Workers Local 2110.

Members voted earlier this month to authorize a strike, with 93 percent voting yes. “There’s a general sense of injustice and frustration as the university continues to stall illegally,” said bargaining committee member Rosalie Ray, a Ph.D. student in urban planning.

For the first time in 15 years, 4,000 subcontracted hospital housekeepers and dietary workers in British Columbia have job security. They won that peace of mind by pulling off a series of escalating actions on the job.

Between 2002 and 2005 the provincial government, headed by the Liberal Party, fired 10,000 hospital support service workers—mostly women and people of color—and subcontracted their jobs to multinational corporations including Aramark, Compass, Sodexo, and Acciona.
