UW-Madison’s Teaching Assistants’ Association is hoping to stop activity on campus Thursday by calling for a “teach out.”

The TAA states on its website that it’s asking the campus community to focus on the threat Gov. Scott Walker’s budget repair bill “poses to graduate employees, the university community, and workers across the state.”

The TAA -- which represents nearly 3,000 graduate employees at UW-Madison -- notes  it’s not calling for the cancellation of classes.  Instead, the organization is suggesting classes be held off campus or be rescheduled.

The TAA post states that UW-Madison Chancellor Biddy Martin is aware of the teach out and has “no formal plans to stop it.”

The TAA is the oldest graduate employee union in the world.
