New York University Strike Poster

This poster threatens a strike against New York University during collective bargaining negotiations. NYU prides itself on being a 'private university in the public service' and a 'Global University' with branch campuses around the world. Text specific to NYU replaces the traditional spaces on the popular board game Monopoly. By linking the university's behavior with the popular game, and the clever use of the iconography associated with the game, the union is objecting to the failure to reach a contract agreement and threatening a strike. NYU and the union eventually reached an agreement without a strike.
