Stand for justice with UMD Workers!
 
We, the undersigned, are deeply concerned about working conditions and treatment of workers here at UMD-College Park.  We are dismayed over revelations contained in the March 31st Diamondback article, which detailed the "plantation" environment endured by workers who are "made to feel like idiots." Further we are disturbed at the lack of response from the University Administration to these serious concerns.  The ideals of higher learning cannot be built on the humiliations of its workers.
 
We urge President Loh to take immediate action to improve the working environment for campus workers and pledge to stand with campus workers on April 13th at 1PM as they rally for justice and dignity here at University of Maryland.

We also urge everyone to contact President Loh and demand that the University take action on the workers behalf. Phone: 301-405-5803. Email: president@umd.edu
