The decision will affect private universities nationwide and overturns a 2004 Brown University precedent, which asserted that students were not employees and therefore did not have the right to collectively bargain.</p><p>The decision was preceded by a long legal battle between the Graduate Workers at Columbia group and the university. The students complained about a lack of job and wage security, late paychecks, poor medical coverage, and a host of other issues. Columbia University argued that students "have a primarily academic relationship with the University and therefore are not employees."</p><p><a href="http://columbiaspectator.com/news/2016/08/23/columbia-graduate-students-win-right-unionize-landmark-case" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">h/t the Columbia Spectator</a></p><p>Interested in other labor-related issues?
