Come join students, workers, and community members to learn about UNC-CH’s history of worker struggles on campus and to discuss how students can support worker rights on our campus today.

Learn how Lenoir employees, with the help of UNC students, went on strike in the 1960s and successfully increased their wages and the wages of 5,000 other state employees. Hear first hand accounts of how UNC-CH housekeepers sued the University i…n the 1990s on issues of discrimination and won pay raises and University recognition of their union. Finally, learn about worker struggles that are happening on our campus today and talk with other students, campus workers, and community members about how students can help support these struggles.

Campus workers are what makes our university great. For our university community to move forward towards a more just and equal Carolina, we must first learn where we have been. Come be a part of the movement!
