The Academic Labor Board convened last month to discuss intimidation and unfair labor practices surrounding graduate student unionization here at Yale has made public its conclusions - check out its statement here. As reported in the Times: Members of the panel, headed by the former chief counsel of the National Labor Relations Board, said a dozen graduate students told them at a public forum last month that faculty members had threatened to hurt their academic prospects for supporting a union. Several graduate teaching and research assistants also said faculty members or the campus police had ordered them to stop discussing the union with fellow students in places generally open to public discussion. "The fact that so many students reported threatening and intimidating experiences, including in relationships with their immediate academic supervisors, itself raises a serious concern," the panel wrote.
