Labor Supporters Protest at College

By Barbara E. Martinez

On Monday, members of several labor organizations, including workers from the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press and Union Summer picketed the Yard. The labor organizations have waged more than 10 protests during the past three months to force action on the part of James I. Cash, Robinson professor of business at the Harvard Business School (HBS).

Cash is a member of the Board of directors of the Knight-Ridder Corporation. A Federal Court ruled on June 20 that two papers owned by both Knight-Ridder and the Gannet Company had engaged in unfair labor practices by locking out workers who had been on strike since July 1995.

Union members have been forbidden to protest on HBS property and at Cash's home in Weston. They seek a statement from Cash objecting to Knight-Ridder's appeal of the court's decision.
