GW students, workers, faculty, staff and community allies turned out last Friday afternoon to support dining workers at GW as the university transitions from Sodexo to Restaurant Associates. The GWU Progressive Student Union organized the rally and march "to demand job retention for the over 40 dining hall workers on our campus," delivering 2,000 pledges, "demanding that the administration act NOW to secure employment" for the workers. "The action this afternoon was such a strong show of solidarity and community between workers and students!" reported the GW Progressive Student Union. "Thank you to all who showed up to hold GW accountable. We look forward to hearing from administration in the next week...until the University makes concrete commitments to these members of our community, this effort is far from over."
