Description: This April 18, 1969, article from The Carolinian, the student newspaper of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), consists of seven captioned photographs documenting the UNCG food service workers' strike of March 27-April 2, 1967. Most are photos of the student strike in support of the food service workers. Pictured, among others, are Henry Frye, attorney for the workers, and Student Government Association President Randi Bryant. 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.
