Solidarity with Bowdoin Housekeepers

Bowdoin College President Clayton Rose


Housekeepers at Bowdoin College in Brunswick have come together to have a collective voice on the job. By standing with their co-workers and forming a union, they are fighting for fair wages, dignity at work, and improved working conditions.

In the coming weeks, Housekeepers at Bowdoin will vote to decide if they want to come together as a union, represented by MSEA - SEIU 1989.

We call on the President, Management, and the Board of Trustees to remain neutral in the election. Please sign the petition to let Bowdoin know you support these workers' right to decide if they choose to form a union.

We, the undersigned community members, stand in solidarity with the housekeeping workers at Bowdoin College who are exercising their right to form a union.

We ask Bowdoin management to remain neutral in the matter and to allow the workers to vote in a fair election, free from any coercion, intimidation, or retaliation.
