A United States District Court recently held ruled that legislation seeking to
prohibit Graduate Student Research Assistants from forming labor
organizations was invalid because it was adopted in violation of the
Michigan Constitution . The decision will open the door for GSRA in the
State of Michigan to decide if they wish to be represented by a union.

It will be interesting to see what effect this decision may have on the pending NLRB decision concerning the statutus of graduate students under the NLRA.
