I-House Food Service are FIGHTING BACK!

I-House workers' are confronting UC's future: contracting out, abuse of temporary workers, short-staffing, workplace injuries! In 5 years, staffing has gone from more than 25 full time career staff, to 10!

Management is still short-changing the staff and students and refusing to stop hiring contractors, end the abuse of temporary workers and post 8 career positions.

This action workers say ya Basta! Enough is Enough! Chancellor Birgeneau will be attending the I-House "Gala" -- workers will continue to press for their demand that he walk a day in the shoes of a low-wage worker in HIS campus. Not at work,but at home, to see what it really means to live on $25,000 a year.
