Food service workers stage picket line at Morgan State

Listen to this article

On a brutally cold Wednesday afternoon members of Unite Here Local 7, along with a few of their Social Justice activists, staged a picket line on the sidewalk outside of Morgan State U. in Baltimore. The unionized food workers, employed by Thompson Hospitality at the university, have “gone without a raise since 2007,” according to Local 7’s press release. They also complained that the company has “dragged its feet in contract negotiations and insist on raising the workers’ cost of health insurance.” For more on this labor dispute, click here.
