The workers of UAW 2865, UAW 4123, UAW 5810, and Student Researchers United-UAW are in solidarity with you, striking academic workers at Columbia. We support you in your fight for dignity, equity, and a fair workplace. We support you in your fight for wages that meet the cost of living in New York City and a contract that protects workers against harassment and discrimination. 

We call on Columbia to settle a fair contract with you immediately, and we condemn its outrageous anti-worker retaliation and strikebreaking tactics. We are horrified that Columbia chooses to waste its resources on a fight against those who carry out the university’s most essential mission of education and research.

Your work matters. You matter. Your struggle is our struggle, and we are proud to fight alongside you in the same union. From California, we are with you in solidarity.
