In response to UC's unfair labor practices, including their intimidation of student workers on our own campus, we are striking on Wednesday, April 2 and Thursday, April 3! This strike was supported by a vast majority of the Joint Council of our union, the democratically elected body of UAW Local 2865 comprised of members from each campus. Below is a preliminary schedule for the strike days. All are encouraged to join the pickets for as much time as possible.
**PICKET LINES LOCATED AT BANCROFT AND TELEGRAPH**
AFSCME (service workers), AFT (lecturers and librarian) and UPTE (clerical workers) will be bringing food throughout the day so come hang out at the pickets with your fellow campus workers!
