Whereas the Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA) needs to provide the off-campus dining option that we promised students;
Whereas the WSA hopes to minimize conflict with the labor union and other concerned groups;
Whereas using points off-campus may eventually affect workers’ hours and jobs, and whereas the WSA recognizes and sympathizes with union workers’ concerns regarding their livelihoods;
Whereas a continuing conflict regarding the use of points off-campus could harm the Wesleyan and Middletown community;
Whereas the hot meal options on campus after 8 p.m. and on weekends are insufficient;
Whereas the number of campus dining jobs after 8 p.m. and on weekends is already minimal;
Whereas the WSA expects Aramark to maintain and improve upon the current quantity and quality of dining options on-campus;
Be It Resolved:
The WSA will continue to improve on-campus dining options, while pursuing a program for the academic year 2003-04 that allows students to use points off-campus after 8 p.m. and on weekends.
Be It Further Resolved:
The dining committee must approve the labor practices for any restaurant(s) used for off-campus points.
Before implementation, the restaurant(s) designated for use of off-campus points must be approved by the WSA after presentation by the dining committee in regards to labor practices.
