On January 17, 2018, Seth Douglas of the Student Workers Coalition, an on campus group that advocates for student workers, filed a Representation Petition on behalf of House Advisors (HAs) to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) due to Reed College’s refusal to voluntarily recognize the democratic decision of the college’s HAs to unionize. The NLRB approved the petition, resulting in a hearing to litigate issues pertaining to the matter on January 29, 2018.
