Guys, I love Wendy. Finding out that she’s getting shafted personally pisses me off, but the entire idea of BA shifting the books in order to shaft nine-year veterans to deny them benefits infuriates me, especially since they’re supposed to be the “socially conscious” dining service.
So because the email is vague and we don’t know exactly what’s going on, I have sent out emails to Dean Rick (rculliton@wes), BA’s district manager (dcrim@wes), Wesleyan’s human resources department and Wendy.
We’ll keep you updated with their reply.
(I’m not even sure who is the “right” person to contact, so I sent out a barrage. Feel free to do the same.)
There’s also a “Feedback” page on BA’s Wesleyan page.
Edit: Mad Weiss ’09 comments:
I think it was clear when Bon Apetit was chosen that the students and workers really wanted a provider that would keep the benefits that the worker’s union had fought for and won with Aramark – and Bon Apetit promised to deliver.
It should come as a surprise, because I think a lot of people would have been more hesitant to choose Bon Apetit over Aramark if they knew it meant really adverse effects for the workers – but BA promised again and again that it was all fair and clean.
So, if this does turn out to be true, I think it’s reasonable to be surprised and angry.
