Cornell Violated Federal Labor Law in Grad Assistant Union Election

May 18, 2018

Cornell University violated federal labor law during last year’s union election for graduate assistants, but the election results will stand, an arbitrator said this week. Some 856 students voted in favor of unionization in 2017 and 919 voted against it, with an additional 81 ballots unresolved. The American Federation of Teachers, with which the would-be union is affiliated, contested the results of the election, alleging administrative interference.
