Organizing Update

Berea College

Student workers at Berea College, a work college in Kentucky, are organizing their union with CWA. As a work college, every student at Berea holds a campus job that supports the building and operation of the college.

“The values that led us to Berea are the same values that led us to form a union,” said Lily Barnette, a member of the organizing committee. “It’s about supporting each other and making sure we have the support we need to thrive here.”

Student workers are organizing their union to give them a voice on the job and solve ongoing concerns like improving workplace safety, ensuring every student worker has the training to be successful in their jobs, creating a formal grievance procedure, and ensuring that student workers earn fair wages. Students work as a way to defray educational costs and graduate with less debt. The workers have demanded recognition for their union and are awaiting a union election date before the end of the current semester.
