Over 1,000 Workers March On Yale - ALIYYA SWABY, New Haven Independent

Elia Vollano marched to work Thursday evening with 1,000 fellow union members, in the hope that she and her colleagues will still have jobs. Vollano, a unionized account assistant for 20 years, fears she will lose her job and benefits at Yale Medical Group in an announced pending wave of university layoffs. So she joined more than 1,000 UNITE HERE Local 34 clerical and technical workers and community and union allies who marched from downtown to the Yale Medical School at 333 Cedar St. Thursday evening to rally to keep their unionized jobs and the benefits that accompany them. Blue-collar Local 35 members, who turned up in large numbers at the rally, fear similar job cuts elsewhere at Yale.
