“7K or Strike” Becomes “Rank and File Action”

BROOKLYN COLLEGE–The 7K or Strike movement’s commitment to adjunct pay parity hasn’t changed – but their name has.

 In a broad rollout of updated handles across social media, the activist movement formerly known as 7K or Strike changed its name to “Rank and File Action” (RAFA) on Feb. 22. According to several people in the movement, the rebranding isn’t a reorientation so much as it is a confirmation of their ideals to a broad set of policy goals, both across and beyond CUNY.
