Page: Campaign Profile - Stanford University

Stanford University, Stanford, CA

The Student-Labor Action Coalition is an active coalition of students and student groups at Stanford that has led campaigns for a living wage, code of conduct, and for supporting union contract negotiations. In the Spring of 2003, students staged a public hunger strike to pressure the university to change its hiring policies and rehire a fired worker. Currently, SLAC is pressuring the university with staff and unions to adopt a "code of conduct" for employment policy.
