Protesters occupy UW Chancellor's office


MADISON (WKOW) -- One person was arrested Monday after a dozen students occupied the UW-Madison chancellor's office as part of a protest.

The students are calling for the university to cut ties with Milwaukee-based Palermo's pizza over its labor practices.

They took over the reception area of the chancellor's office for a few hours before leaving peacefully.

Also Monday, the National Labor Relations Board upheld a decision that dismissed a complaint against Palermo's and its labor practices.

In a statement, interim chancellor David Ward said cutting ties with Palermo's is not warranted.
