Be it resolved...

Cambridge, MA. city councillor Marjorie Decker came to visit Freedom Village on Sunday, April 22. UNICCO has many contracts with institutions in Cambridge. Harvard University, where a successful (though not yet fully resolved) campaign against UNICCO was fought previously, is also in that city.

Councillor Decker flew right back to Cambridge and put this item on the agenda for today's city council meeting:

That this City Council go on record urging the Harvard University Presidential Search Committee, when choosing the next leader of Harvard University, to consider candidates’ record of support for living wages, workplace health and safety, and workers’ right to organize.

You can read the full text of the resolution here. It explicitly refers to the situation here at the University of Miami. Their website does not yet record the vote, but Councillor Decker was confident it would pass unanimously.
