Let’s support our fellow union workers who need a fair ( living wage ) and a contract !

Members of UNITE HERE! (Local 40) who work at the UNBC campus providing food services to the University community, have been in bargaining for several months with their employer, the Compass Group.  These cafeteria workers have organized a rally on Wednesday, November 8th, from 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm in the courtyard (Agora) in protest against low wages and restricted health benefits.   

If you are able to show your support, please plan on attending the rally to find out more about the long standing issues and challenges facing the cafeteria workers, whom many of us see at work each day.  Members can also e-mail their show of support for these workers at:   UNBCjustice@gmail.com
