Students to meet with Bruininks over strike

Jake Weyer

More than 100 University students attended a pro-union sit-in Wednesday at Morrill Hall.

For the second straight day, students sat throughout the building and waited for a meeting to be scheduled with University President Bob Bruininks.

Some students brought blankets, pillows and food, but all left when the building closed at 6 p.m.

Eighteen students, Bruininks and other administrative officials are scheduled to meet at 9 a.m. today, said Kathryn Brown, University vice president and chief of staff.
