Campaign background: At Harvard, home of the infamous living wage campaign and 21-day sit-in (more info), the Student Labor Action Movement (SLAM) has begun a Right to Organize Campaign. The campaign is demanding that Harvard only do business with companies which take a neutral position on union organizing. SLAM is also asking that Harvard demand that AlliedBarton Security offer card check neutrality to its workers. Card check agreements provide that the company will recognize a bargaining unit if a majority of eligible workers sign cards indicating their willingness to join a union. This demand is is part of SEIU's national campaign to organize AlliedBarton Security Guards across the country.
