Nearly 50,000 UC Academic Workers Strike



Nearly 50,000 UC Academic Workers Strike

Nearly 50,000 academic workers at 10 University of California campuses began a strike on November 14th to bargain for better working conditions. The unionized workers are postdocs, researchers, trainees, fellows, graduate student instructors, readers, and tutors, organized with UAW 5810, UAW 2865, and the newly-formed SRU-UAW.

Although there are 4 separate contract fights, the UC workers are striking all together in a historic action that has already prompted calls for a mediator. Some faculty have canceled classes in solidarity. So far, there is no end date for the strike.
