Alumni Petition to Saint Michael's College: Reinstate Tom and Dannis, Apologize for unscrupulous union busting behavior

For the first time in college history, workers on campus voted last year to form a labor union to represent them.  Less than a year later,  college administrators fired two of the leading union organizers on staff.  Tom Kingston,  15 years of service to the college, and Dannis Hackney, 9 years of service, have been model campus citizens.  Firing workers for union activity is illegal, immoral, and below the social justice mission that Saint Michael's College claims to uphold.  We as alumni are calling on Saint Mike's administration to hold up the social justice tradition in action and not just in empty rhetoric.  Until the college does the right thing, we will not donate another dime to the school.
