Georgetown Dining Workers Celebrate First Contract

Georgetown University dining workers joined in a Local 23 rally on Valentine's Day

March 2, 2012

Aramark workers at Georgetown University are celebrating their first union contract. After months of negotiations the bargaining committee and the company reached an agreement that was ratified on March 1. This first contract includes big improvements to workers’ health insurance and substantial raises.

"Contract negotiations is an experience I'll never forget,” said Dante Crestwell, a Georgetown dining worker and member of the negotiating committee. “It showed me how much a determined and dedicated group of people standing up to the company and not backing down can do. We won with the help of Georgetown students, who fought alongside us and supported us from the very beginning.”

Congratulations to Georgetown Aramark workers on their first union contract!
