"What do we want? Unions! When do we want it? Now."
That chant was part of the demonstration Penn State graduate student employees who want to unionize held Wednesday in front of Old Main, the university administration building.
Among those clapping and cheering at a pro-union rally were faculty, employees and politicians.
Derek Fox, an associate professor of astronomy and astrophysics, said graduate students have voted to unionize at other institutions and the sky hasn’t fallen.
