Support the Living Wage Campaign
24 Apr 2001

NOW: All the maintenance unions are turning out workers right now. Please join us IMMEDIATELY in Harvard Yard to support the necessary actions of the protesters and join them in demanding a
living wage. If you live outside of the area (or when you get back from the rally), please take a moment to call and e-mail the following administrators:

Neil Rudenstine, President (617) 495-1502, beverly_sullivan (at) harvard.edu
Harvey Fineberg, Provost, (617) 496-5100, harvey_fineberg (at) harvard.edu
Sally Zeckhauser, VP for Administration, sally_zeckhauser (at) harvard.edu
Harry Lewis, Dean of Harvard College, lewis (at) harvard.edu
Polly Price, Associate VP for Human Resources, polly_price (at) harvard.edu

Contact them to demand that the University pay all Harvard workers a living wage, and insist that the administration negotiate with the students sitting in. The safety of the students inside and the
struggle for a living wage rely on your support. Please forward this message widely. 7 PM: Living Wage Panel Emerson Hall 105. Hear author of Living Wage Prof. Robert Polin, civil rights leader
Rev. James Lawson, Cambridge City Council members, and a Harvard custodian speak about the importance of immediately implementing a living wage.
