Board of Trustees Delayed Vote Again; Student Workers Deeply Disappointed

On September 27, in a campus update sent to all students, staff, and faculty of Grinnell College, the Board of Trustees announced that “there will not be a decision about limited expansion at the October Board meeting,” further delaying a decision which was already postponed from the May Board meeting.

Student workers protested against the Board's delay in May.

We are deeply disappointed by the Board’s decision to further delay the already long over-due vote on partial expansion of union representation. The apparently endless delay is neither a viable nor sustainable resolution. We will vigorously engage in the input processes laid out by the Board so that the Board will accept a partial union expansion agreement as soon as possible. We will continue to organize and fight for all student workers.
