The Liberal University...not!

Check out this memo from Columbia Provost Alan Brinkley (a well known liberal historian who has supported the rights of other workers to organize), about possible retalitory actions during the strike last week.

Suggestions included:
* Make Grad students teach and extra semester or year to fulfill requirements
* Take away summer funding from participating grad students
* Participating grad students loose eligibility for special fellowships
* Grad students in year 5+ could not recieve additional teaching appointments

This is absolutely disgusting! And, if we were still covered under the NLRB, some of these actions would be illegal.
