MU graduate employees file lawsuit against university

COLUMBIA, MO (KFVS) - The Coalition of Graduate Workers and several graduate workers filed a lawsuit on Thursday, May 12 against the University of Missouri.

The coalition is an affiliate of the Missouri National Education Association.

They filed the lawsuit in Boone County Circuit Court, challenging its refusal to recognize and bargain with CGW as the collective bargaining representative of graduate workers at the Columbia campus.

CGW represents the interests of graduate workers. According to the union, it formed as a result of the university cutting off insurance coverage to graduate workers in August 2015.
