On November 26, 1996, the UNC Housekeepers Association (HKA) officially settled a five-year-long grievance process with the University. Gathered in Hill Hall, three hundred housekeepers across the University voted to accept the conditions of the settlement, earning over one million dollars in pay raises and back pay, substantial backing for career training, child and elder care, a public health study, and the establishment of a historical commission to study potential ways to commemorate the contributions of Black workers to the University.
