Brandeis University Grad Student Workers Join SEIU 509 By 2-1 Margin

May 2, 2017

Just months after the National Labor Relations Board affirmed that graduate student employees have the federal right to form a union, Brandeis University graduate students voted Union Yes by an overwhelming margin, 88 to 34. Attorney Patrick Bryant has been advising SEIU and its locals on higher education instructor organizing in Massachusetts and Vermont. Thanks to a dedicated team of organizers, SEIU and its affiliates have won elections in every private sector college instructor organizing drive in Massachusetts and Vermont since 2012. The Brandeis election represents the first successful union election by graduate student workers at a Massachusetts private university by any union. They voted to join SEIU Local 509.
