Tentative deal ratified by SEIU members, ending the strike. Thanks to everyone for their amazing support. Details will be posted on the support site as they become available.
There is a new website up and running that outlines all the ways you can support Striking SEIU workers. We encourage all members to visit:
Specifically, you’re encouraged to join solidarity pickets (click here for the schedule) and to send a message to President Patrick Deane and Assistant Vice President Mark Haley telling them to bring an offer to the table that will settle the strike (click here to send a message).
For information updates from SEIU visit their website www.FoodServiceWorkersTogether.org. A group of students has created a flyer for undergrads outlining the reasons why they as students should support the strike. A copy of the flyer can be found here.
Finally, undergraduate students have the right to refuse to cross the picket lines without being penalized academically and to have reasonable alternative arrangements made regarding their coursework, assignments and deadlines. The Senate Policy on the “Rights and Responsibilities of Undergraduate Students During Work Stoppages…” is available here. If you have any questions regarding the implementation of this policy, please contact the union or your employment supervisor.
