Please sign me up: the treatment of U of O graduate students is shameful and cruel. Even though I think much could be improved, I'm glad to say that our graduate students receive at least minimal protections guaranteed both by law and by negotiated agreement. Yet another reason I'm glad to have moved to a Canadian university.

Please include me as well. I'm a University of Oregon alumni. Class of 2007. Maybe the administration should ask the students how they feel about their grad students striking? If I was still an undergrad there, I would support them. I remember thinking they were underpaid, overworked, and way overqualified.

Karim Hassanien

Shame is not an emotion I'd anticipated associating with my alma mater a mere two years after graduation. This doesn't detract from the quality of education I received, but it does tarnish the reputation of my degree. As an alumni, I feel I deserve better, even if my pockets aren't deep.

Becka Morgan

I am appalled by the handling of this situation in both the illegal activities of the administration and the total disregard of the integrity of student education. Additionally I am disgusted by Dr. Coltrane's complete disregard for his own work. I can only hope that the outcome of this strike is that the GTFs are successful in getting the pay and leave that they deserve. In solidarity with GTFF 3544.
