To ensure full labor protections for graduate student workers, and for 
                            other purposes.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

    This Act may be cited as the ``Respect Graduate Student Workers 
Act''.

SEC. 2. SENSE OF CONGRESS.

    It is the sense of Congress that, pursuant to the definition of 
``employee'' in the National Labor Relations Act (29 U.S.C. 152), 
graduate student workers at colleges and universities are employees and 
should be granted every right and responsibility conferred to them 
under such Act, and graduate student workers should not be excluded 
from the definition of ``employee'' on the basis of an educational 
relationship with an employer.

SEC. 3. PROHIBITION ON CERTAIN RULEMAKING.

    The National Labor Relations Board may not finalize the proposed 
rule entitled ``Jurisdiction-Nonemployee Status of University and 
College Students Working in Connection With Their Studies'', published 
September 23, 2019 (84 Fed. Reg. 49691), or make any similar rule.
                                 <all>
