Stand with Union Glaziers at Cornell! May 15th, 2024

Despite being home to the renowned School of Industrial and Labor Relations (ILR) – self-described as the “preeminent educational institution in the world focused on work, employment and labor” – Cornell’s allegedly pro-union principles fail to include Union Glaziers. While Cornell honors agreements with many other unionized building trade, it refuses to recognize the Glaziers Union. Indeed, Cornell has gone so far as to award glazing work to a non-union contractor who lacks the required NACC and AGMT glazing certifications. These certifications are objective third-party verifications that a contractor and its glaziers possess the skills necessary to perform the work proficiently. Cornell has failed to honor these high standards, circumventing a Union Glazing contractor who meets those standards.

It is despicable for Cornell to ride the coattails of (and profit from!) the labor movement through its ILR school while continuing to discriminate against Union Glaziers. We believe that students, parents, professors, alumni, and the public have a right to know about Cornell’s duplicity.

Come stand in solidarity with the IUPAT Glaziers and show Cornell that Central New York's labor community will not tolerate their actions any longer! Glaziers will be holding an informational rally at Cornell University on Wednesday, May 15th, from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Reach out to IUPAT DC4 Director of Organizing Frank Stento (607) 727-5208, to find out more about how you and your organization can support these workers.
