Description: This March 29, 1969, editorial from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), comments on the UNCG food service workers' strike of March 27-April 2, 1967. The editorial questions how long the strike will continue, notes the involvement of UNCG students, urges that order be maintained and that the rights of of players be preserved, and suggests that financial support for striking workers is a student responsibility. Some twenty-five largely minority workers walked out 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 food service contractor ARA Slater retained its contract with UNCG.
