Union workers still
By MICHELLE FRICKE
DAILY STAFF REPORTER
Despite warnings from local po-
lice and unsuccessful negotiations
with management, four former
Jacobson's employees continued their
daily boycott of the store in Briarwood
Mall last night.
Jackie Leslie, a member of
Teamster's Local 164 and a former
Jacobson's worker, will bring her story
to campus Sunday during an address
about local workers' struggles.
The picketers, who were laid off a
year and a half ago, were joined by
supportive friends and fellow union
members in passing out pamphlets to
"We've been hit in the pocket-
books and that's why we're boycott-
ing (the store)," said Jackson resident
Virginia Reber. "All we're asking for
is our jobs back."
She and her fellow union mem-
bers wore sashes emblazoned with
the words, "Don'tshop atJacobson's."
The strike began 19 months ago
when the retail-store chain replaced
more than 160 warehouse/distribu-
tion center workers for refusing to
accept wage freezes and cuts in their
health care coverage. The cuts were
made after a new warehouse supervi-
sor was hired.
Although they have boycotted stores
across Michigan, Ohio and Florida, the
Teamsters Local 164 members have
targeted the Briarwood location with
the anticipation that the newly remod-
eled store is looking to holiday sales for
"We feel the store was remodeled
at our expense," said Pat Seaman, a
16-year Jacobson's veteran. "They
need this baby to pull them out of a
Many of the workers, mostly
women, have lost homes, cars and
even their husbands since the strike
"(Jacobson's has) taken away our
livelihood," said Jackson resident
Susie Sauceda, who was laid off after
seven years with the company. "And
we want to let the company know we
won't go away."

The organizing committee aims to
make the conference accessible to a
wide range of people. Labor issues
will be explored through brown-bag
workshops, academic panels, poetry
readings and musical performances.
"It's great that the University hA
taken up the subject of work, since
that's what most of us do after leaving
the University," said Jane Slaughter,
director of a pro-labor publication.
She will speak tomorrow.
Conference presentations will in-
clude the diverse voices of labor lead-
ers, activists, scholars and students.
Theorists will be able to share
their ideas with the actual workerq
that they affect.
In addition to the academic pre-
sentations, artistic performances will
