Harvard’s newly formed graduate student union is preparing to vote on a long list of bargaining objectives. The list addresses a wide variety of issues- ranging from childcare to international student protections. Some of these goals include negotiating free tuition, lower housing costs, and greater health coverage. The union is also seeking to establish a formal third-party grievance procedure. Union negotiators hope to begin bargaining with the university before the end of the semester.
