Stanford announced on Saturday that it has formed a tentative agreement with SEIU on a new five-year contract for the roughly 1,270 SEIU-represented workers at the University. But multiple union members have already expressed disapproval.
As housing costs continue to skyrocket in the Bay Area, where places such as East Palo Alto are expected to reach a median housing price of $1 million in the coming year, Stanford workers feel particularly affected.
Following suit with Presidential candidate Julián Castro ’96, who visited campus on March 23 to express support for the Service Employees’ International Union Local 2007 (SEIU Local 2007) while they renegotiate contracts for service employees, the 20th Undergraduate passed a resolution in support of the workers at Tuesday’s meeting.
U.S. presidential candidate and former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Julián Castro ’96 attended a Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 2007 meeting on March 30 to discuss his support for campus workers in their upcoming contract negotiations with the University.
