NYU Students End 6-Day Building Occupation

December 11, 2018

A group of student advocates ended their six-day occupation of the Kimmel Center for Student Life at New York University after the university, according to the students, agreed to investigate the feasibility of self-operated dining services. The students -- led by the Incarceration to Education Coalition, a student group that advocates to make NYU more inclusive for formerly incarcerated people -- requested that the university cut ties with the dining services company Aramark, which currently runs NYU’s dining halls. Aramark also coordinates dining services for private prisons.

Administrators had indicated they’d appeal to the National Labor Relations Board after union members voted overwhelmingly to add all student workers to their rolls.
