Members of the Indiana Graduate Workers Coalition voted against a new strike on Sept. 26, the most recent development in the IGWC-UE’s over three-years-long struggle to improve working conditions at Indiana University.

Since the IGWC-UE ended its weeks-long spring strike last May, the IU administration has announced policy changes that address the IGWC-UE’s main demands, but the university hasn’t recognized the union.

As of October, IGWC-UE is in negotiations with the Bloomington Faculty Council and the Graduate and Professional Student Government with the hopes of attaining partial union representation before the end of the fall semester.

The IDS is continuing to report on this developing story. Any news tips can be forwarded to the news desk at news@idsnews.edu.
