Yale College Republicans Hold Barbecue Next to Union Hunger Strike

Members of the Yale College Republicans held a barbecue on Friday next to eight graduate student teachers on a hunger strike over the Yale University’s refusal to negotiate with its newly formed union.

While the eight protesters sat in a tent next to University President Peter Salovey’s home, having not eaten in three days, the college Republican group cooked up a meal of beef, baked beans, and corn on the cob for the local community.

The hunger strike concerned Yale’s unwillingness to negotiate a contract with its graduate teachers, who voted to unionize in February. The union, known as Local 33, is a subgroup of the international labor union UNITE HERE.

The university’s refusal is currently being appealed to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), with the university reportedly hoping to hold out until Donald Trump appoints a new batch of anti-union members to the NLRB.

Asked about his reaction to the barbecue, Local 33 Chairman Aaron Greenberg told The New Haven Register, “I’m not really focused on that. I’m focused on making sure we have lots of water, make sure I’m healthy. We have a check in with our nurse this afternoon. We are focused on that.”

    So what. They chose to go on a hunger strike. If they had enough self control it should not have bothered them. After all the others did not go on the hunger strike and can eat what and where ever they want.

    Excuse me, but zero people care about this non news item. Glad to hear there are Republican students @ Yale, tho. These nitwit idiots hunger striking need a good dose of the real world. Join the U.S. military & be someone who just might make a difference. Otherwise, your existence is like dust blowing in the wind! No one cares, sewage rats!! Ship the lot of you off to IS or N. Korea!! Invertebrates!

    the part of this story that is the most “juicy” that Yale administration, which officially hates Trump and everything about him is waiting for him to save their bacon by appointing anti-union members to the RLRB so they don’t have to recognize the Union…talk about hypocrites….and of course after they get the ruling they want, they will be sure to criticize Trump’s anti-Union administration…just watch
