Students at Colby formed the collective called United for Better Dining Services, which aimed to “oppose structural violence and demand justice with the Sodexo workers.” Their goals included raising wages, improving working conditions, and improved transportation, better healthcare, and better training. The collective sought to do this by threatening to divest Colby from Sodexo if it refused to comply with the outlined demands.
