Neon-shirts without a contract

by admin June 11, 2010

The students protesting during Angry Week weren’t the only ones to stand up for their cause during Congress. Unionized employees with facilities management, like electricians, plumbers and carpenters, protested the fact that they have been without a contract with Concordia for two years. In true hipster fashion they protested by wearing neon yellow shirts to display their discontent and concerns, mainly related to salary and benefits. When asked how Congress visitors and organizers reacted to their shirts, one electrician said, “they know how to find us.” On the left, apprentice electrician Frank Parent shows his protest shirt as he waits for a contractor in the LB building.
