PIRGIM ASKS CIANCIOLA TO BAN PROD UCTS
Nestle's boycott at Union?

(Continued from Page 1)
scheduled for this Friday and Cianciola
said he expects to have made a decision
"shortly after they meet," hopefully
within a week.
HE ADDED that he was unaware of
the problem until he received the let-
ters, which he described as "infor-
mational."
The new manager of the Union Store,
Gary Treer, said, however, that the
Michigan Union is "not a political
operation." He added that the purpose
of the store is "serving students, not
making political stands."
Neither Cianciola nor Treer were
sure exactly how many Nestle's
products are sold in the Union, or how
much money these products bring in.
Treer said, though, that the Union
"won't stop carrying a product for a
political reason," and will stop selling a
product only if students stop buying it.
He said that he doesn't feel it is up to the
Union to determine "what they
(students) can or can't buy from us."
THE MANAGER of the University
Club, Brian Campbell, said he didn't
think the restaurant/bar used any
Nestle's products and that the U Club
probably wouldn'y be affected by a
boycott.
A buyer for University Cellar, Mary
Lewison, said that the Cellar stopped
buying Nestle's products in January or
February of this year, after she heard
the charges against the company.
Nestle's makes a lot more than just
candy bars, PIRGIM information
states. A few of their lesser-known sub-
sidiaries include Lancome cosmetics,
L'Oreal cosmetics, Taster's Choice and
Nescafe coffee, Stouffer products,
restaurants, and hotels, and Libby
products.
BOTH CIANCIOLA and Treer agree

THE PUBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH Group in Michigan in conjunction with the Michigan Student Assembly sent let-
ters to Frank Cianciola, director of the Michigan Union, seeking a ban of all products made by the Nestle's Corporation,
including the candy bars above. PIRGIM and MSA, in their letters, claim that the Nestle's Corporation has cost the
lives of more than one million infants in Third World countries by the "forced marketing" of its products. Cianciola said
he plans to announce a decision on whether stores and vending machines in the Union will continue to carry Nestle's
products by next week.

that one function of the Union is to serve
the student body. Treer said the Union's
responsibility is to students "as a
whole." Cianciola said that they want to
be responsive to the "broadest group of

students." Treer said that if the student com-
Cianciola added that they must "per- munity does agree with PIRGIM's
cieve both sides" in order to be respon- viewpoint, it would be indicated by a
sive to all students and to "view the drop in the purchase of Nestle's produc-
request objectively." ts.
