UO Grad Students In Second Week Of Strike

Rachael McDonald

It's finals week at the University of Oregon and Graduate Teaching Fellows are in their second week of a labor strike.  

University of Oregon spokeswoman Julie Brown says with Graduate Teaching Fellows on strike the school is giving faculty options for administering finals and giving grades.

Brown: "In some cases, finals are continuing as have been planned all term. In other situations, students may have the option to be able to take the grade earned on course-work to date."

Moberg: "We're really disappointed to hear that decision on the part of the administration, especially because it's the administration that has the agency to decide how finals and final grades work."

Erin Moberg is a Vice President with the Graduate Teaching Fellows Federation. She says undergrads should know they can appeal a grade if it's given without a final exam. The parties go back to mediation Tuesday.
