Petitioning The College of Wooster

Eliminate the option of outsourcing Campus Dining Services

We, the students and alumni of the College of Wooster and members of the greater Wooster community, would like to make our stance on the potential outsourcing of The College’s Dining Services known. We oppose the contracting of the Dining Services to an outside agent for a variety of reasons. First and foremost are the financial and occupational repercussions this would have for our Dining Services employees. This outcome would most likely result in fewer benefits and possible salary reductions, and job insecurity.

Furthermore, the notion of social responsibility is stressed and taught to us by our professors daily; the importance of putting this value into action is something that we feel strongly about. It would be unjust to cut the benefits of our low-income workers in order to balance the budget. Taking money from the least affluent is wrong, especially when these are the people who have consistently demonstrated their dedication and loyalty to us, ensuring that we enjoy quality meals each day.

We are concerned with how such a change may impact the College’s connection with the members of the greater Wooster community. These campus dining employees are our fellow community members, as well as our neighbors and friends. They have shown great loyalty in their jobs here, and we have a commitment to reward their dedication. Our relationship to these workers should be reciprocal, and the idea of a college community would be threatened if an external agent becomes involved.
