UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI STATEMENT ON UNIONIZING EFFORTS The University is aware of a possible work stoppage as part of a unionizing effort. Today, we have learned that Chartwells offered the union a card check, and the University is hopeful this will resolve the issues. The University assures the campus community that residential college dining halls and our food court operations will continue as scheduled through the remainder of the semester. The University values its faculty and staff, as well as employees of its contractors, including Chartwells.If confirmed, this wonderful news means a successful conclusion to the struggle the Chartwells workers have waged for union recognition. We thank all concerned, the workers themselves, the Administration, the Union, the student and faculty supporters, for their terrific efforts!
