In July 2006, an arbitrator determined that NYU cannot reneg on its agreement to provide ACT-UAW with office space. NYU administrators
attempted to back out of the agreement a year after entering into it, claiming that the agreement was somehow illegal. The
UAW provided special help arguing this case, because of its potential to undermine other locals' contracts and agreements.
In the end, the arbitrator determined that the agreement was both legal and binding, setting a clear precedent for the enforceability
of future agreements.
