Service & Solidarity Spotlight: Nearly 90% of Duke Graduate Students Vote ‘Union Yes’

88% of Duke graduate students voted for unionization.

Working people across the United States have stepped up to help out our friends, neighbors and communities during these trying times. In our Service & Solidarity Spotlight series, we'll showcase one of these stories every day. Here’s today’s story.

Duke Graduate Students Union won a historic, landslide victory, becoming one of the largest unions in North Carolina. Their union victory is the first such victory at a private university in the South and the largest union victory in North Carolina since 2008. The students campaigned for respect and the freedom to thrive while working at one of the wealthiest private universities in the nation, which fought to deny them their freedom to join together in a union.
