Dear All,

Despite plans to double the number of students on campus for the Spring
semester, Harvard has announced
it will slash the incomes of hundreds of custodial, security, and dining
service employees in the middle of the pandemic. Pres. Laurence Bacow
attempts to justify these cruel attacks on workers & families in the face
of  Harvard's vast endowment of almost $42 billion, more money than ever.

Please mask up, bundle up, spread out & join workers and supporters today
(Weds) in Harvard Yard at 12 noon for a rally & march (face coverings &
social distancing required).

Please also call / email Harvard President Laurence Bacow at 617-495-1502,
president at harvard.edu;

Executive VP Katie Lapp at 617-495-1524, evp at harvard.edu;

HBS Dean Nitin Nohria at 617 495-6550, nnohria at hbs.edu.

Suggested message:

*I demand Harvard back off from plans to cut the incomes of hundreds of
workers during the pandemic. Harvard can well afford to act responsibly
during this public health crisis*.

In Solidarity,

Geoff Carens, Union Rep, HUCTW / AFSCME Local 3650 [personal capacity]
