Barnard WGSS Statement of Solidarity with the Student Workers of Columbia (SWC-UAW Local 2110)
The Barnard College Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies supports the Student Workers of Columbia (SWC-UAW Local 2110) in their strike for higher pay, adequate health and dental insurance, and neutral arbitration in cases of harassment. We know that the student workers face the withholding of stipends, potential retaliation and other hardships in relation to this strike, and we recognize the sacrifices being made, the material stakes of the strike and the necessity of solidarity at this time. WGSS encourages you to contribute to the hardship fund for striking workers here.
