JOIN US FOR A NOON RALLY AT THE NEW SCHOOL UNIVERSITY CENTER, 63 5TH AVE, TO CALL ON THE NEW SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION TO MEET THE DEMANDS OF THE CAFETERIA WORKERS
On May 1st, members of The New School Communist Student Group called for an occupation of the University Center cafeteria in response to the mass layoff of the cafeteria workers. These workers, all of whom are people of color, many of whom are women, will lose their jobs, their pensions and their benefits.
The Communist Students dared to struggle when the union told the workers to reapply and pray they would be one of the few to be rehired.
They refused to leave without a fight. We will occupy the cafeteria until ALL the demands are met by the administration:
1. Every Job Saved
2. Higher Wages
3. Same Benefits
4. Tuition Vouchers
5. Resignation of New School treasurer Steve Stabile
6. Worker-Student control of the cafeteria
We the students at The New School stand in solidarity with the cafeteria workers. The greedy administration will not commit to the demands of the workers and instead makes flimsy promises in attempt to save face. We will fight against this exploitative, white supremacist and patriarchal institution until EVERY DEMAND is met.
We will be holding a picket outside the University Center while continuing the third day of the occupation. Stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the workers to show the greedy New School administration just how powerful we can be when we UNITE in SOLIDARITY.
ALL CONTINGENCIES CONCERNED WITH THE RIGHTS OF WORKERS UNITE! JOIN US IN THE STRUGGLE AGAINST THE RULING CLASS.
ALL OF US OR NONE. EVERY SINGLE JOB.
