NYU: Firing Grad Strikers

So New York University is no different from any other rightwing corporation. Workers go on strike on they threaten to fire them, rather than negotiate a solution:

New York University issued an ultimatum yesterday to its striking graduate student teaching and research assistants: They must return to classes and other assignments next week or lose their financial stipends and their eligibility to teach next semester. Those who return next week will not be penalized.
ie. they're fired and won't be rehired after that point, just like every threat of "permanent replacements" by private corporations out there.
