From The Chicago Maroon:
The University has filed a petition asking the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to reconsider its decision to allow student library employees to unionize. This is following an election sanctioned by the NLRB and held June 2–8 on campus, in which the Student Library Employee Union (SLEU) voted to become an official union.
The petition, filed on July 24, maintains the University’s stance that student library employees should not be allowed to unionize according to labor law because their work is “temporary and/or casual in nature.”
It also takes issue with the timing of SLEU’s election, which coincided with spring quarter reading period and finals week, and with reported behavior exhibited by union representatives near polling places in Regenstein and other libraries.
