Comparing NYU’s Statement and the Fair Labor Code of Conduct

In response to calls from the CFL and others, NYU finally announced a new set of labor standards in February 2010.

Most notably, there is no commitment to a guaranteed minimum wage and no protection for the fundamental internationally-recognized right to freedom of association and collective bargaining.
