Rally in Yard
With negotiations between the University and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) ongoing, students and union members demonstrated Tuesday for custodial wages higher than those offered so far by Harvard. The University has proposed starting wages above the amount unanimously recommended by the Harvard Committee on Employment and Contracting Policies and has agreed to most union requests including vacation, sick leave, and short term disability for part-time workers. Harvard has also offered a child care assistance fund of $25,000 and supplemental worker’s compensation payments. Negotiations continued on Wednesday.
