After fighting for nearly a decade to gain recognition, New York University graduate students working for the school will be the first private university students to join a national union. In an agreement earlier this week, the school said it would recognize the Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC), provided the majority of graduate students were in favor of unionizing. By Wednesday night, the students voted in favor of the union and dropped their petition to the National Labor Relations Board. While NYU students were allowed to unionize in the past, the school refused to renew their contract in 2005 after the NLRB reversed a prior decision recognizing graduate student employee unions.
Students documented the GSOC voting process on Twitter.
