UConn sit-in successful
May/June 2001

At the University of Connecticut, a 55-hour sit-in in the president's office resulted in a $2 an hour raise for contract employees. Here is material from their website:

"What we won:

"... What next? Well, for one thing, prevailing wage is not the same as living wage. We should not stop with what we've got. And although the six-month notice is a step toward greater community participation in running the University, it is a small one, and we should not stop the movement for democratization here."
