Next week, members of the graduate student union at the University of Chicago are planning a work stoppage and protest in hopes of gaining University recognition of their organization. Graduate Students United voted to authorize the action last Monday. As of now, there is little information regarding strike specifics. Graduate students have cancelled their classes for the coming week due to the strike. Students have stated that during the strike, they will not be completing any of their typical tasks such as grading, answering emails, or engaging in research.
