UMass Labor Center Facing Budget Cuts

Eve Weinbaum, Director of the Labor Center at UMass-Amherst, writes, “We are asking administrators to reverse the cuts to Labor Studies; to restore our graduate student funding and externships; to maintain our full curriculum; to honor the Labor Studies faculty’s autonomy to make programmatic decisions and to designate a Director; and to commit that the Labor Center is an integral part of the University’s educational mission, not just a profit center to subsidize other programs.” Click here to read her letter and how to offer support.  Additional information can be found here.  A signed petition is also underway at Change.Org.
