Some 1,800 clerical workers at the University of Minnesota have gone on strike, the first union strike at that university since 1944.

“… “Some University professors and teaching assistants will move classes off campus.

Melissa Williams, a graduate student in American studies, said she will hold her classes off campus Tuesday.

“The fact is, (the University) can’t do anything about it. If they impose any disciplinary action, there’s a good chance we’ll be unionized next year,” Williams said.

More than 150 professors are taking their classes off campus, affecting more than 4,000 students.”
