Boston City Council unanimously passed a resolution on Wednesday in support of the Boston College Graduate Employees Union (BCGEU-UAW): “A Resolution Affirming the Rights of Graduate Student Workers to Organize For Fair Working Conditions.” Sponsored by City Councilwoman Lydia Edwards, it calls on the University to enter into bargaining with the union.

“Be it resolved: That the Boston City Council calls upon the Boston College administration to respect the democratic choice of its workers by, without delay, bargaining a contract with BCGEU-UAW that reflects the values of fairness, equality, and justice the University promotes,” the resolution said.
