Ninety workers in Springfield voted to form a union. “We're looking for change from a company that is making millions of dollars,” Erskine Kelly told the Valley Post before the vote. He is a soup cook at Springfield College.
The college hires Aramark Corporation to run its dining halls. So the workers are employed by Aramark, which is based in Philadelphia and is the 19th biggest privately owned company in the world, according to Forbes Magazine. The workers voted for the union on October 24.
