Description: This March 28, 1969, editorial from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), discusses the UNCG food service workers' strike of March 27-April 2, 1967, and calls on food service contractor ARA Slater to agree that activist employees would not be terminated. There had been some suggestion that agreeing to this one demand could have avoided the walkout. Some twenty-five largely minority workers went on strike based on specific complaints related to pay rates, working hours, overtime provisions, wage reviews, breaks, severance requirements, and dismissal requirements, and there was also a student boycott of the cafeteria. The strike was resolved with some concessions, and ARA Slater retained its contract with UNCG.
