The union claims that its members were singled out by disruptive protesters who temporarily seized control of a campus building and labeled them as "spoiled" and "bratty."

John Samuelsen, the President of TWU International, stated on 'Fox & Friends' that the members of his union are "particularly incensed at Columbia for not protecting the workers and particularly pissed at those particular protesters that tried to hold our workers in the building" while the takeover of Hamilton Hall began last week.
