Yesterday hundreds of nurses demonstrated and rallied outside UMass Memorial to protest the announcement of system-wide job cuts. Today, from 10:30 to 12:30 and again from 2-4, workers for food company Sodexo, which provides Clark’s campus meals, will also go on strike.
So much for our article today that says private sector unions have lost their clout, which in turn has hurt public sector union influence.
Update: According to the Telegram the Sodexo workers’ strike started at 6:45 am, when they refused to begin the breakfast shift.
