Say no to racism and union busting at College Bound Dorchester!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!


Sign this petition to demand that Mark Culliton and CBD leadership immediately reinstate the eight workers who were terminated and voluntarily recognize the Uncornered United union.

On Friday, June 12, College Bound Dorchester/Boston Uncornered (CBD) management announced a mass layoff of eight workers, one-third of the organization’s staff. None of the staff were given any advance notice, despite the years of service they have all given to CBD. This decision is blatant, illegal retaliation against the entire staff, who announced their decision to unionize under the name Uncornered United-SEIU Local 888 on June 2.

In the days before the layoffs, CBD raised over $650,000 by pitching itself as a social justice organization. Now, in the midst of a national movement against racism, the organization has unleashed a union-busting campaign against its majority-Black staff. Six of the eight laid off are Black, low-paid staff. In contrast, Mark Culliton, the organization’s white CEO, makes $185,000 per year, and the Board of Directors is stacked with white corporate officials. Social justice needs to include workplace justice! Take action to stand with CBD workers:

  1. Sign this petition
  2. Call (617-596-2624) and email (mark@uncornered.org) CEO Mark Culliton to demand that he immediately reinstate the eight workers who were terminated and voluntarily recognize the Uncornered United union.
  3. Attend the Uncornered United press conference on Tuesday, June 16, at 11am. Meeting location is the Little House at 275 East Cottage Street, Dorchester, MA.
