It ain't over till it's over

It turns out that the card check agreement between Chartwells and the SEIU, unlike that between the SEIU and UNICCO in 2006, did not contain a neutrality provision in which both sides agree not to attempt to influence the choice of the workers in deciding whether to have a union. In the light of this, the news that Chartwells is planning to require the members of its workforce to meet with management officials starting next Monday (April 29th) is worrying.

We intend to remain vigilant.

Charwells presumably will harass, harangue, lie about the evils of unions, and try to intimidate the workers. I've seen other employers hold mandatory meetings for which workers are not paid. One more burden for these workers. Damn.

I hope that the University of Miami won't tolerate any harassment of the workers by Chartwells. It's essential that the university act as a monitor in this delicate transitional phase.

Other Universities are monitoring Chartwells response.
I have no problem using social media to push this across four continents.
