Protest at University Day in Support of Housekeepers

Document Description: Almost a full year after the settlement had been reached between the University and the Housekeepers’ Association, the University had failed to hold satisfactory monthly meetings with the HKA and no movement had been made either for the commissions to honor the contributions of African-American workers nor to analyze the effects of working conditions for housekeepers. At University Day October 12, 1997, members of HKA and the Coalition for Economic Justice protested in front of Memorial Hall.
