For those who supported our campus food service workers in their struggle to organize a union last spring, here’s an update---They are nearing the settlement of their first contract, which will mean the first raise in a few years for many of the employees! In order to achieve this victory, they could use a little boost from the rest of the CSU Community. They are planning a series of actions over the next two weeks and would love our support as faculty and students as they stride towards justice in their workplace. Please contact me (773-995-2333) or UNITE HERE organizer Stuart Mora (517.648.4573) if you are free for even a part of these events or would like more information about the cafeteria workers' struggle or upcoming events.
