Interview with an employee of the ARA Slater Food Service at UNCG

Date: circa March 25, 1969

Author: unknown

Biographical/Historical abstract:

Additional contributor:

Description: This report of an interview with an unnamed employee of ARA Slater Food Services at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) quotes the interviewee as stating that workers are concerned about their current status and working conditions and are aware of strikes among workers on other campuses. In addition, it notes that workers have no contract, can be fired at will, and lack specific job descriptions. This interview predates the food workers' strike that took place at UNCG from March 27 to April 2, 1969. A handwritten note, dated March 25, 1969, at the bottom states that the memo was forwarded to Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson by Phil O'Dorighty (whose name is corrected to Phil O'Doherty on an adjacent document).
