Mount Holyoke College

The MHC housekeepers organized their unit in 2000. Over half of the workers in the housekeeping unit have over thirteen years service and loyalty to the college. Nine workers have twenty or more years service and employment with the college. This group has a long term relationship with the college and turn over is extremely low.

The housekeepers reached an agreement and settled their first contract with the college in June 2001. The bargaining unit is active and meets as a large group regularly for membership meetings and as a smaller elected group with management for labor/management meetings.

The unit settled another contract with renewed pride and saw the power of organized labor in action with lively negotiations. The bargaining committee was able to win new benefits, hold on to past benefits, and improve overall language throughout the contract.

Mount Holyoke College is a liberal arts institution, located in South Hadley, Massachusetts. The School was founded in 1837 by Mary Lyon. MHC is the nation’s oldest continuing institution of higher learning for women and is recognized worldwide for its innovative academic program, legacy of women leaders, and its commitment to connecting the academy work to the concerns of the world.
