UPDATE -- GSOC has reached a tentative agreement with the administration. Very proud of all the graduate workers at NYU. Strikes work!

I support the NYU Graduate Student Organizing Committee (GSOC) in their process of negotiating a fair contract with the university administration. NYU president Andrew Hamilton -- who makes two million dollars per year -- has announced he won't negotiate, thus forcing a strike by graduate students.
As an NYU faculty member I stand with the graduate students. I will be respecting the picket line both physically and virtually, including classes and public events.
If you work at NYU please consider signing this open letter calling on the university to settle a fair contract.
Please also consider donating to the mutual aid fund.
