Janitors Denounce Rumors of University Employees' Union

Well Treated Staff Holds Union Unnecessary; Apted Not Interested

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"Even if they did come around they'd have to give an awfully good reason before I'd join up. A raise in pay wouldn't be enough. The University treats us all right on that score, and any raise in pay we'd get would be counteracted by the cost of the union.
