In the spring of 2005, the firing of a pro-union dining services employee named Vel Dowdy provoked protest from a number of student groups on campus. UNC Student Action with Workers, the most vocal of these groups, petitioned the Office of the Chancellor to reinstate Ms. Dowdy and issue a statement of support for a card-check neutrality process for unionization. Finding little traction with the administration (an internal review concluded that the university was not responsible for worker complaints against food services provider Aramark), the students turned to other means, including staging public protests and reaching out to larger organizations such as the NAACP. However, not all university students supported these efforts, and some of the anti-union students were as persistent as the unionists in their efforts to stymie labor organization on campus. Chris Cameron is one student whose name appears frequently in the archives; he emailed administration members with his objections to unionization and forwarded to the chancellor’s office a student plan to raise awareness by targeting tour groups. Cameron’s emails show one of the greatest impediments to official university support of food worker unionization—resistance from students themselves.
