Trustees On Campus - Union Demonstration Continues

The employees demonstrating yesterday were back at it today in front of Main. We have learned that the demonstration was done to coincide with the Board of Trustees' visit this weekend.

The employees demonstrating are Buildings and Grounds and the Food Workers Union. They are working towards higher wages, an insider tells Mads.

Not all employees agree with the demonstration, however. One employee (who would prefer to remain anonymous) said the employees are asking for a "wage increase that is unrealistic in today's economy." This employee also criticized the union's demonstrating on Vassar property, which usually is against union regulations.

It was not a strike; they are still working. It was a demonstration. There is a difference, so get it straight.
