To Be Determined

Students Organizing for Labor and Economic Equality (SOLE) is a student organization at the University of Michigan. Since 1999, we have been affiliated with a national student organization, United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS).

We advocate for social and labor justice through direct action, education, and nationally coordinated campaigns. Our fight is for worker's rights and the struggle for an alternative to corporate domination, both locally and globally.

Over the course of last semester (winter 2008) we waged a campaign against New Era Cap's discriminatory practices at their Mobile, AL facility. Additionally, much solidarity work was done with the Graduate Employee's Organization (GEO), to help them successfully secure a new contract with the University. As usual, we held many events on campus to continue pressure on the University administration to go sweatfree. Feel free to contact us or sign up to receive occasional email updates about SOLE and related community events.
