April 7, 1976: A protest of 300 members of the Brotherhood of University Employees Local 612 and Temple University Management picketed against Temple. One of the picketers was arrested for blocking two fuel truck drivers. The union was protesting several issues at the university, including their hiring practices. They were working with an attorney to file discrimination suits with the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission and the Federal Equal Employment Opportunities Commission against Temple.
