Minneapolis, MN – Upwards of 250 members of Teamster Local 320 and their supporters joined a spirited informational picket line, August 31 to “Turn up the heat” on the U of M administration, pushing their demands for a real raise and respect. The six-hour long picket took place on the Super Block, a huge complex of student dormitories. It coincided with move-in day.

A strong showing by the university’s AFSCME Local 3800, along with the support of members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA), other unions, and Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) contributed to the event’s success.
