Rally supports UNBC cafeteria workers

 

About 40 people, mostly UNBC staff and faculty, rallied outside the university Wednesday in support of university’s contracted cafeteria workers on campus, many of whom earn less than $15 dollars an hour. UNBC’s cafeteria workers have been bargaining with Compass Group, a multinational food service contractor. The company’s most recent wage offer was a wage increase of $0.20 per hour, says Octavian Cadabeschi, rally organizer and member of UNITE HERE Local 40. The contract expired at the end of April. The workers are urging UNBC to recognize their contribution and to ensure that that all jobs on campus are good jobs. Bill Phillips photo
