Shortly after posting the last update, I got an email from a unionization supporter reporting that
- The students are still in the adminission office, with no A/C, no access to bathrooms, no water, little food.
- there is a large crowd around the Ashe Building, supporing the students inside; there’s also police
- UM President Donna Shalala offered to meet with the students, but only on condition that Father Frank wouldn’t be in the room. The students “didn’t like the sound of this,” and brought Father Frank with them to the meeting, so Shalala walked out on them almost immediately.
- UNICCO has threatened to start firing people as soon as Thursday
What I’d like to know is why is Donna Shalala afraid of Father Frank Corbishley?
