MADISON, Wis. (U-WIRE) - University
of Wisconsin at Madison Chancellor David
& rd met with students and members of key
mp us committees Wednesday to reopen a
=dialogue on sweatshop issues for the first time
since last week's sit-in in Bascom Hall.
"I would hope that we could put 90 percent
of our efforts toward looking forward and 10
percent of our efforts toward looking back,"
Ward said.

risin chancellor, students revive dialogue

M

Executive Committee members and others to
reignite the shared-governance process stalled
since students resigned from the Collegiate
Licensing Company Task Force Advisory
Committee in January. Ward hoped to reform
the committee or create a new one to evaluate
Madison's role in ending sweatshop labor.
However, students said the sit-in was
indicative of underlying student dissatisfac-
tion with shared governance at the university
in general, and not just on the sweatshop com-
mittee.
"1I don't think we the students are ready to
talk about the sweatshop issue itself," resigned
committee member and protester David

Ernesto Alvarado said. I think we should all
take steps to recognize the crisis that exists."
Ward said protests at other universities
related directly to swveatshop issues, and he
said it was a mischaracterization to claim the
protesters' primary concern was shared gover-
nance.
"if you want to deal with shared gover-
nance issues, we'llI deal with it, but not
through a sit-in," Ward said.
ASM Shared Governance Chairwoman
Becky Wasserman said students often feel
alienated on campus committees when their
opinions are not taken seriously or when they
are outnumbered by faculty and staff.

Resigned CLC Task Force Advisory Com-
mittee member Molly Mc Grath said obsta-
cles to student participation are the lack of
decision-making power on committees and
faith in the university's good will.
" I guess for me the issue at hand is an issue
of trust," Mc Grath said.
Ward restated his commitment to fighting
sweatshops.
"1 wanted to be with you on the sweatshop
issue,' Ward said.
University Committee member Tom
Sharkey recommended that students not let
their shared-governance concerns delay the
progress of talks relating to shaping the Work-

ers' Rights Consortium, which will hold its
founding conference in April.
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Paul
Barrows sent the chairs of the University
Committee, the Academic Staff Executive
Committee and ASM back to their constitu4cn-
cies to discuss shared-governance processes
with which they would be comfortable. They
will report their conclusions at a meeting ten-
tatively scheduled for next Wednesday.
"One thing that really struck me here today
was how simple things could have been,"
Alvarado said. "We're always willing to talk
and we're always willing to talk in very, rea-
sonable terms."

going to get the support from the students at East Lans-
ing,' Gurewitz said.
Justin Winslow, director of legal affairs for the Associ-
ated Students of Michigan State University, said students
currently compose 60 percent of the population in East
Lansing.
"They said this bill will create a more accurate popula-
tion in Lansing. How is it accurate if 60 percent of the
population goes unheard'?" he said.
But Rogers spokeswoman Sylvia Warner denied that
the bill was politically motivated.
"This bill was introduced long before he was thinking
of running for a congressional seat,' Warner said. "It's
typical for someone to be looking so hard to find a politi-
cal lever. It's unfortunate that the ACLU has decided to
use this piece of innocuous legislation."
State Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor) said she supports
the lawsuit.
"I oppose this legislation vehemently' Brater said.
"We should be doing everything we can to be encourag-
ing students to participate in the democratic process, not
making it more difficult."
Gurewitz said since the Secretary of State has juris-
diction only over Michigan residents, out-of-state stu-
dents will not be affected by the law, which is set to
take effect April 1.
"The studeiits who are here and maintain an address in
New York will be able to vote in Ann Arbor,; she said.
In addition to MSA, student governments at Cen-
tral Michigan, Ferris State, Grand Valley State, West-
ern Michigan, Michigan State and Michigan
Technological universities are also plaintiffs in the
lawsuit.

Indiana apparel

By Joseph S. Pete
Indiana Daily Student (Indiana Ui.)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (U-WIRE)
- Fifteen companies have discontin-
ued manufacturing Indiana University
apparel since the school began requir-
ing full public disclosure of factory
locations, University officials
announced at a meeting with anti-
sweatshop group NO SWEAT! in the
Indiana Memorial Union on Monday.
Having such information in the
open is essential to taking steps against
human rights abuses tied to sweatshop
labor, activists said. The Licensing and
Trademarks Office sent letters to about
600 Indiana licensees notifying them
that they would have to disclose the
addresses of their factories.
The university will break off busi-
ness relations with companies that do
not comply. The deadline was Jan 31.
University officials said they are sat-
isfied with the' outcome. "We're very
pleased," said Dean of Students Richard
McKaig in a bargaining session with
the student activist group NO SWEAT!
"The University does not want to do

business with companies responsible
for human rights abuses.
Another 237 companies, about 40
percent of all licensees, have not yet
acknowledged the notification of poli-
cy change.
"Because so many didn't respond,
perhaps a good deal of them failed to
appreciate the seriousness of it," said
Jenny McDaniel, director of theLies
ing and Trademarks Office at Indiana's
Advanced Research and Technology
Institute. "It's veiy safe to assume since
there are no real commonalities with the
companies with the product categories~."
.Because so few responded, another
notification will be sent out, giving
licensees until March 31 before action
is takeni. After the grace period, the
contractual termination will be final,
McDaniel said.
"It's important to emphasize that we
don't want to stop doing business with
these companies and abandon the
workers," senior Matthew Turissini
said at the bargaining session. "Our
goal and overriding concern is to
improve the working conditions and
uphold human rights."

"Should some of our students have space taken away

After several minutes of back-and-forth debate, Bollinger
stood up to leave, and as he exited the room, SCC members
and several people in the audience booed, calling him a
"coward."
"Who do these punks think they are?" asked LSA senior

"You should give us a chance to do

Last night, Michigamua spokesman
Nick Delgado said, "the actions that
occurred today - we're utterly

"These actions show that this is not
about Michigamua. It's about a cause.
It's unfortunate that it's risen to this

Delgado said Michigamua is com-

SCC member Colette Route], a sec-

"This is par- for the course at Michigan;' she added. "This

Othcirs were upset that Bollinger's lecture, which was to
be the first of the John D. Evans Distinguished Lecture

ogy, was cancelled.
"The group has a right to free speech;' Public Policy
graduate student Jamie Hine said. "But it was inappropriate
for them to march into that forum."
"This was a direct attack on Bollinger," Hine said. "They
continually cut him off and told him that he was wrong. I
think that President Bollinger appropriately addressed their
