Student Worker Solidarity
After student activists announced Wednesday night that temperatures in the John Jay Dining Hall had been lowered, the administration said they were moving forward with more reforms.
Student Worker Solidarity reported Wednesday that the hot temperatures in the kitchen of John Jay Dining Hall have been temporarily cooled.
The John Jay dining hall renovations neglected to take into account the safety and health of workers.
On Tuesday, members of Student Worker Solidarity submitted a petition with over 1,100 signatures to Vicki Dunn, executive director of dining services, calling for the installation of more effective ventilation in the working areas of the dining hall.
A union contract negotiation grew into a campuswide debate after student activists organized a massive effort to support Faculty House workers this semester.

Faculty House workers voted to authorize a strike Thursday, the latest escalation in the employees’ negotiations with Columbia over a new contract.
