Letter: Unionization would further shared governance

Tuesday, November 13, 2018

To the Editor:

In response to President Christina Paxson’s P’19 Nov. 12 op-ed in The Herald: “shared governance” is valuable to the extent that it includes shared power. Forming a union will give Brown graduate students the agency to advocate for and address their needs both as students and as University employees. Unionization will mean that there is a bargaining table where graduate student “workers” can represent themselves and sort out their differences with “management.” This is a form of “shared governance” that deserves our support.
