Demand 12b: Treatment of Staff

via community letter, Nov. 11, 2015: RESOLVED Spring, 2019

"We demand that there be a student led GED program or opening Emory classes to black workers at Emory (DUC, Cliff, Maintenance). We would like for workers to take classes at Emory but understand that they have limited break time and other restrictions due to their demanding, undercompensated and under-rewarded labor. We, from our own observations, do not like the mistreatment and exploitation of DUC/Cox workers, who are also forced to endure extreme discomfort. We demand that there is better treatment of the DUC/Cox workers and more comfortable conditions for them to work under."

The SJPOs reviewed and confirmed the existing policies for staff rights, including Bon Appetit’s retaliation policy, Cliff Shuttle Drivers’ break policy, and Emory’s retaliation policy. The policies were communicated to the appropriate employee groups to ensure they understood they had recourse for mistreatment.
