The first testimony is from Clarence "Skip" Bowan, the second from Joey Lopez.
...
Both Bowan and Lopez were involved with SDS, and when a white worker called Bowan a "communist motherfucker," Bowan "answered that he didn't mind being called a communist," but took offense at being called a motherfucker.
...
After the first few weeks (two for Bowan, three for Lopez) both were given "slots" - transferred from their General Service Assistant positions at the bottom of Yale's employment ladder to their apprenticeships proper and given a raise to $2.20, which is what they had been originally promised upon hiring.
...
When asked about apprentice's schedules by Bowan, manager Ray Bowen, "the flunky boss," as Lopez calls him, and counselor Lee Roosevelt "started yelling and raising hell that we were the only guys that were raising problems.
...
Joey Lopez was assigned to be a chef's trainee in the Hall of Graduate Studies following his three week stint with housekeeping.He "had a problem."He was observing a "white regular worker" because "he was a more experienced cook."While Lopez was watching him, the cook said "Motherfucking fat Puerto Rican, you make me nervous, you fat bastard."When Lopez complained to Ray Bowen, the head of the training program, managers took no action.
...
Lopez wrote that Tom Pechinsky, then chief steward of Local 35, "had me busting suds - washing pots for him while I was supposed to be learning how to be a cook."
...
When Clarence Bowan and "Bob," a "student friend in Yale SDS" came to pick Lopez up, Pechinsky asked Lopez if the two were with SDS.

After requesting a promotion, Lopez writes, "they put me on a garbage truck where two Puerto Rican guys ride the back - hanging on for dear life. (Bowan apparently likened this to Jim Crow bussing segregation, though perhaps the Memphis sanitation workers' struggle would be a more useful comparison.) The garbage truck was dangerous work - you could "get your hands cut off in the machinery," and Lopez wrote that managers had "never bothered" to teach him how to do his job.

...
Joey Lopez got a fungus infection on his hands from collecting garbage.Management "gave him a hard time about going to the hospital" and instead sent him to Yale's Department of University Health, where he was told that his infection came "from his nerves."Lopez informed the nurse that he'd only had the infection since he started working on the garbage truck, and she told him "If you don't want to work, go home," [i.e., quit.] He "had to go through hell" to get to St. Raphael's Hospital, where he was given antifungal medication.Like Bowan, Lopez was given a slip.He wrote that "whatever they give him they give me because we hang out together.They gave it to me because I am acquainted with Black Panthers and SDS people."The slip claimed that Lopez hadn't been doing his job, even though, he says, "I was breaking my back fighting that trash."Lopez wrote that Yale had no sympathy for its employees that it treated them like mules - "like dogs working from sun-up to sun-down, around the clock."Right after he was read the letter, Lopez was taken to Ray Bowen's office, where "five bosses teamed up" on him and gave him a three day suspension "to get more interested in my job."Lopez refused to take the offer, because, he wrote "I'M NOT GOING TO KISS ANY SLAVE DRIVER'S ASS.When I first was in the program, I signed up for auto mechanic.But they kept me in the kitchen anyway, even though they knew that wasn't what I wanted.I want the training program I signed up for originally - auto mechanic (or plumber or electrician)."
The experiences of Skip Bowan and Joey Lopez illustrate the growing militancy of Yale's workers and the ways in which young workers from New Haven's urban ghettos understood their employer's relationship to their city and their lives.
...
Bowan and Lopez entered into the apprenticeship programs put forward to desegregate Yale's job structure by "enlightened" bureaucrat administrators like Embersits and Marcus and found themselves instead engaged in low wage service work under the pretense of vocational training.
...
It is noteworthy that Lopez could situate himself not only among Black Panthers, but among Yale's Progressive Labor affiliated SDS chapter, whose Maoist national office was "hostile" to the (avowedly Marxist) black nationalism espoused by the Panthers. (The June 1969 SDS split had occurred when representatives from the Panthers demanded that the Progressive Labor Party be expelled from the organization.
...
Local 35 is noticeably absent from Bowan's narrative, while Lopez described the hostility of white workers towards him, and the complicity of union chief steward Tom Pechinsky in Yale's managerial racism.
...
Yale's grant-funded training programs for people of color, were, as Clarence Bowan and Joey Lopez could and did testify, practically fraudulent.
...
Although Lopez identified union chief steward Tom Pechinsky as a cog in the machine of Yale's racist job structure, Bowan's and Lopez's accounts both identified the university, not the union, as the motive force of job discrimination, and other voices concurred.
