Labor union protest fails to gain Chapman’s attention

Despite holding signs two-car-lengths long daily for over a month, the Carpenters Local 2361 labor union protest has failed to gain much attention at Chapman.

Local 2361 alleges that the Chapman-contracted R.D Olson Construction, building the Villa Park Orchard Residential on North Cypress Street, underpays their employees.

Their signs read “LABOR DISPUTE COMING SOON” and those participating in the demonstration are asked to pass out fliers, but are not allowed to give any additional information or answer questions.

We asked Chapman students, a sign holder, and a professor their opinions on the labor dispute and also their feelings on labor unions overall.
