Graduate Teaching Assistants from certain academic departments at Yale University organized and voted for a union (Unite Here Local 33) in February, and the union has been negotiating with Yale for a first contract. According to press reports, students and the union recently announced they would engage in a hunger strike because Yale was not meeting their bargaining demands. But then the group’s idea of a “hunger strike” leaked on Twitter. The rules indicated that the strike was symbolic and that students could leave and get food if they got hungry. “Hey, ya gotta eat,” and “we hear the pizza in New Haven is really good.” (The TAs reportedly get a stipend of $30,000 per year, free university tuition, and university-paid healthcare coverage.)
