Many employees strike after labor dispute with ‘U
Sept. 14, 1967 – Dorm picketing by University staff intensified as a labor dispute continued over Public Act 379, which grants bargaining rights to public employees.
The University administration brought a suit to court arguing that PA 379 is inapplicable to the school and infringes on its traditional constitutional autonomy.
In protest, 200 employees working all across campus, including residence halls, the League and the Union staged a two-week walkout to demand their right to collectively bargain with the University.
The controversy divided student organizations and residence halls, with the Young Democrats and Republicans, Graduate Student Assembly and Inter-House Assembly supporting the union, and most residential hall councils in opposition.
The Mary Markley residence hall council stated that “while ‘U’ may be in the wrong, students should act in a manner which would not inconvenience themselves.”
