Will Grad Students Lose the Right to Unionize Under Trump?


Joseph Ambash was quoted in the article, "Will Grad Students Lose the Right to Unionize Under Trump?" According to the article, which appeared in The Atlantic, universities are arguing that graduate students are not defined as employees under the National Relations Act and, therefore, should not be allowed to unionize. 

Ambash says the concern is that unionization could damage the “academic relationship” between students and universities. If graduate students are allowed to unionize, Ambash argues, they could be bound by union rules that might limit the number of hours they spend researching.

“It will create great disruption and havoc among universities and graduate students,” said Ambash.
