About SLAP

UVM SLAP is a campaign of Students for Peace & Global Justice. We are a collective of students that have been working since 2005 on workers rights issues at the University of Vermont. The largest of which has been our common struggle for a livable wage for all campus workers both directly employed and contracted. Other goals include the freedom to organize, and responsible contractor agreements. We are students committed to a just world and a just UVM. We are committed to working in solidarity with the workers of UVM that make this school run. We are committed to holding UVM accountable and challenging injustice wherever we come upon it!
