Victory! NYU has taken the first step in ending deathtraps

John Sexton’s office has just announced that he’s going to implement the changes in NYU’s code of conduct recommended by the recent University Senate resolution fought for by SLAM. By requiring NYU licensees producing in Bangladesh to sign on to the Accords, we’re helping make garment industry workplaces safer and supporting worker power around the world.

NYU is one of the first schools in the country to commit to making these changes, so we’re helping set an example for colleges across America.

We’d like to thank everyone who helped to make this victory  possible- all the students and other supporters who came out to our letter deliveries, our die-in at the University Senate, our action at one of Sexton’s town halls, and our caroling for workers’ rights event!
