SEIU Local 73 Rally

SEIU Local 73 Rally

The SEIU Local 73 rallied outside the Illini Union on March 7 at noon. They protested for higher wages for the university’s food service workers and business service workers. Tightly grasping their picket signs and dressed in purple and gold, they chanted, “No contract. No peace.” Ricky Baldwin, the SEIU senior field organizer, said the workers are “ready to walk out.” He said the workers will strike as early as Monday if the negotiations are not sufficient.
