If only Jane Gallop understood the class system and the ever-slipping position of academics within it; she might actually come to a meeting of her union rather than maintaining membership purely as an insurance policy against being sued again.

I've only had positive interactions with her. But I know someone who studied under her, so that gives me entré, I suppose.

But I remember how much it hurt us graduate students on the picket lines at UC Berkeley when outwardly progressive faculty completely ignored us to march past on their way to their offices and classes.

At Berkeley, of course, the faculty weren't unionized and probably never will be, so the rift between graduate students and faculty was exacerbated relative to a campus where faculty have a union of their own.
