University of Minnesota Solidarity Network

Solidarity Statement with IATSE Local 13

We, the occupiers of the University of Minnesota Social Sciences tower, extend our solidarity to the members of IATSE Local 13, the stagehands union in Minneapolis. We support your informational picket of US First, the organization that refused to hire union labor and instead hired non-union labor in order to save money. In line with our commitment to support all organized labor, we believe that it is wrong to forgo union labor for the sake of cutting costs, especially for an event on the University of Minnesota campus. For more information, go to IATSE local 13’s website:


Solidarity Forever!
