The real story behind Aramark

As I mentioned in a post yesterday, Aramark and UCI are teaming up together to shut down all the independent food operators on the UCI campus. Apparently, Aramark has quite a reputation for monopolizing the food services at Universities. Here is a small list of schools who have student protests of Aramark because of anti-union practices, unnecessary price increases and monopolizing food services.

Wake Forest
University of North Carolina
Trent University
University of Michigan, Dearborn

There are actually many more Universities that have had problems with Aramark, far too many to list. Good to see that UCI putting on their thinking caps when they hired this company.
