Graduate assistants planning strike
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Graduate assistants at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign plan to go on strike for two days in their effort to seek rights to form a union for about 5,200 graduate student employees.
The work stoppage on Nov. 28 and 29 is the latest move in the students' fight to gain recognition and collective bargaining rights from the school. The stoppage would mostly affect freshman and sophomores.
