Call President Aoun to Demand Compensation for Dining Workers and Residential Assistants!
May 13, 2020 —
Hi, everyone! Tomorrow will be two months since Northeastern announced all on-campus students were required to move out—yet Northeastern has still not provided dining workers with any pay or medical benefits since they were laid off on March 19. This is despite the fact that Northeastern received $11.6 million in the CARES Act, more than Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and Lesley, who have all agreed to give pay and/or medical benefits to laid-off dining workers. Northeastern has the money to pay dining workers, and their decision to refuse to do so is irresponsible and unacceptable.
Therefore, the national organization United Students Against Sweatshops is doing a call-in into President Aoun’s office to demand pay and medical benefits for dining workers, as well as a pro-rated refund for room and board for RA student workers! You can go to https://usas.org/studentworkerwednesdays for details about how to participate in this call-in. Please stand in solidarity with dining workers and residential assistants by calling President Aoun!
