Since 2020, undergraduate student workers at Kenyon College have been trying to unionize. We spoke with workers about what they say are the college’s union-busting tactics and NLRB delays preventing the union election process from moving forward.

Kenyon College student workers are on an unfair labor practice strike today. The strike comes during a campaign to organize the first US union representing all undergraduate workers on a campus. Jacobin spoke to several strikers and two campus maintenance workers supporting them about why they’re organizing — and how other students can follow their example.
