Associated Students of the University of California, Santa Barbara
Resolution submitted to and approved by Associated Students of the University of California Santa Barbara (ASUCSB) Legislative Council. The resolution says at least one-third of corporations that recruit graduates at the UCSB Placement Center have branches and/or subsidiaries in South Africa, practice discriminatory hiring and employment, and are in opposition to the University of California’s policies on non-discrimination. The resolution says the ASUCSB Legislative Council prohibits from the use of any and all University facilities, especially the Placement Center, any company or organization that practices discriminatory hiring and/or employment practices, whether domestically or abroad. A handwritten note says to contact William Burnett, c/o Martin Legassick, for more information. The resolution discusses apartheid, United Nations Resolutions A/1761 and A/1889, trade, investment, and several South African laws (the Native Laws Amendment Act, Native Labor Act #48, Bantu Laws Amendment Act, Industrial Conciliation Act, Job Reservation Acts, and Apprenticeship Training Acts).
