Action includes leafleting students about the importance of the Labor Center and supporting the stake holders who are meeting with the Chancellor.
Mass. AFL-CIO President Steven Tolman, UMass Amherst Chancellor Kumble Subbaswamy, and Frank Callahan, President of the Mass. Building Trades Council (and Labor Studies alum) are hosting a stake holders meeting on Monday, October 17, 2-4pm, on the UMass Amherst campus, “to consider ways that the UMass administration, labor, and key stake holders can partner to strengthen the Labor Center so that it continues to play a leading role in advancing the cause of organized labor and Massachusetts workers for many years to come.” Steve is bringing 20 other stake holders; the Chancellor’s office will bring others. The meeting is not public.
We will rally at 1:00 and proceed to greet and support the stake holders, leafleting along the way. Bring a friend and a homemade sign.
We are invited to return at 4pm for a briefing by Steve and others.
