Layoffs - are they coming? How can we fight them? - Panel Discussion

Harvard Workers Speak Out!
a panel discussion on layoffs at Harvard from those they impact the most
what can we do to prevent layoffs?

Tuesday March 31st @ 5:30pm
Ticknor Lounge, Boylston Hall

Harvard Yard, Cambridge, MA

Harvard - the world's richest university - has already started laying off some of its lowest paid employees to cut costs during the financial crisis. Cutting staffing levels by 40% at some work sites.

The City of Cambridge has called on Harvard to save the jobs of its service employees that rely on their income the most.

Join us for a panel where janitors, security guards, clerical workers, and dining hall staff will speak out about the pending layoffs in their workplaces.

Layoffs are more than just percentage points on a budget, but directly impact hard-working people that are simply trying to provide for their families. Come listen to their stories and show your support for Harvard workers fighting to keep their jobs.
