A message from the Wes dining staff

Subject: We need your help

Hello everyone,
I hope your summer is goin well. I can’t wait to see you all when we get back.
Here is what is going on….

1st, we still don’t know when our return to work date is.

The biggest issue is hours. There are only 3 (THREE) 40 hour a week jobs, 7 jobs that are between 20 & 30 hours and the rest are UNDER benefit level, which means there will be most of us WITHOUT health benefits. The way they have scheduled the jobs makes it almost impossible to combine to make a benefit level job which we were able to do in the past.

I’m not sure who is in USLAC, but if you are or even know someone who is, please let them know, we need the support of the students.

I have been with Wesleyan for 9 years in September, and thats not a long time. So, I’m sure I and the 20 employees under me in seniority will be the ones with no benefits.
Please pass this message along.
Thanks for listening.
Miss you!

EDIT: Sorry, this was an e-mail from Wendy. It was forwarded to me by another student.

    I have mixed feelings. If this winds up being true, then I would like for us as students to do everything in our power (which is considerable) to fix it.However, given the vague information, I’d be hesitant to get too riled up yet. The workers, like the students, can easily get frustrated with too little information and come to the worst conclusions. This is largely the fault of those in charge, because they should be making information about such important things as workers’ hours easily accessible, but maybe it won’t turn out so bad.I think you did the right thing in sending letters of inquiry out – hopefully, we’ll know more soon.If what Wendy says turns out to be true, then first, BA are idiots, because it’s been clear from the start that workers’ benefits have always been wes students’ top concern. Second, we will give them hell to pay until they make it right.But, yeah, trying not to jump to conclusions here. But… this is an issue to really get pissed about and use our students’ privilege for.

    You should really add some more information, such as who we can contact, what we can do as students, etc.
