From Campus Reform:

According to Inside Higher Ed, teaching assistants in the East Asian Languages and Literatures, English, Geology and Geophysics, History, Art History, Math, Physics, and Political Science and Sociology departments all held votes Thursday in response to last year’s ruling by the National Labor Relations Board that graduate students at private universities are eligible for collective bargaining.

Based on the ballots that have been counted, only the Department of Physics rejected unionization, though two other departments have uncounted ballots that could still be counted, pending a ruling by the NLRB on their validity.
