Our colleague Dan Long recently contributed an article to Employment Matters titled, “National Labor Relations Board Grants Student Assistants the Right to Unionize at Private Colleges and Universities” that highlights the National Labor Relations Board’s ruling that student assistants have unionization and collective bargaining rights under the National Labor Relations Act. This ruling ultimately reversed its 2004 decision in Brown University, which withheld graduate students from unionization rights due to the fact that they were not considered employees under the NLRA.
