With negotiations at a stalemate, Temple graduate students go on strike

After more than a year of unsuccessful negotiations, the union representing 750 graduate student teaching and research assistants at Temple University went on strike Tuesday, for the first time in the union’s history.

Members are planning to picket around campus and hold a rally at 2:30 p.m. outside Charles Library before a scheduled board of trustees meeting, said Bethany Kosmicki, a member of the negotiating committee and past president of Temple University Graduate Students’ Association (TUGSA).
