UGSDW Wins Reinstatement for Student Employees

UGSDW won reinstatement of 146 wrongfully fired student dining employees, but much remains to be improved in the employment practices of Grinnell College. UGSDW will fight toward a campus-wide union to address problems across the campus.

A Response to President Kington

Today President Kington sent out a Special Campus Memo addressing our ongoing unionization efforts. The memo is full of vague statements, and a few thinly-veiled threats. Notably absent is the recognition we have been fighting for: that student workers are employees and have the right to organize. The administration refuses to treat us as such; instead they advance an argument against unionization that is simply unsupported by the facts.

Grinnell’s Anti-worker Agenda

In September, UGSDW announced a campaign to bring union representation to all student workers at Grinnell. We tried to work with the Grinnell administration to reach an agreement that would ensure students had the right to decide for themselves whether to unionize or not, free from interference and intimidation.
