UC JOBS NOW!

JOIN US WEDNESDAY MAY 23rd

MU PATIO 11:30am

On May 1st, Davis witnessed the biggest protest in recent history. Around 800 students, workers, and community members marched from the MU and demanded the end of UC Davis' contracting-out of over 500 on-campus food-service jobs to the multi-national corporation Sodexho, which exploits workers by paying them poverty wages and offering them extravagantly unaffordable health coverage. In order to end this injustice, we demand that these workers be given UC JOBS NOW!!! On May 1st, the UCD administration promised Sodexho workers a meeting within a week in the presence of someone with the power to amend the situation. Three weeks have passed and the administration has refused to meet to resolve the situation.

The UC Davis administration continues to ignore this pressing matter and side with a private corporation instead of the community it is supposed to serve. Workers can wait no longer for the just employment they deserve. Our demand for UC JOBS NOW is clear. The administration has given us no choice but to once again gather together to make sure they get the message loud and clear.
