By firing Ms. Rosello, C&W services has left a newborn child and her mother without financial support. As students at Tufts, we benefit daily from the services provided by our janitors, and we all know our university could not function without them. Discrimination like this has no place in any community, as it undermines our values and is shameful for our fellow students, faculty, staff, and administrators. Given the upcoming negotiations between C&W and Tufts University, as well as contract negotiations with janitors next fall, we must recognize that incidents like this are not isolated or uncommon.
We the undersigned demand an end to instances of racial and gender discrimination, as it is an illegal practice, and we DEMAND that Luz Rosello is rehired.
