Yesterday, an independent mediation service certified the signatures on union authorization cards that been collected by UNITE HERE last spring. They were able to verify 39 cards which represents almost 56% of the eligible workers who were employed at the time.
In the coming days we will continue the process to officially recognize the union and the next steps in collective bargaining. As we previously stated, we will be reaching out to all stakeholders during this time, including the union, our customers and the university. We believe working with everyone, we can transform our operations to improve the lives of our employees, the experience of our customers and the overall dining plan at Wesleyan.
