After 9 months of negotiating at UIUC, Building Service and Food Service Workers pulled off an enormously successful strike with 97 percent of the workforce walking off the job and 2/3 picketing over the three days. Garbage overflowed, food was undercooked or inedible, supervisors and managers struggled to keep the campus somewhat functional. Building Trades stayed home and refused to do their work. The strike was so severe that the UI declared a state of “emergent or catastrophic” conditions!
