UPTE members turned out in huge numbers, despite rain across the state, to show UC executives that we aren’t backing down in our fight for fair Research and Technical contracts. Senator and Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders joined us at our UCLA picket line, connecting our fight to the nationwide struggle against inequality.
WHAT’S NEXT? UC executives are trying to downplay the impact of the strike and spread confusion about their own unfair offers. We need to make sure our coworkers are ready to take further action if we need to protest UC executives’ illegal bargaining tactics or in solidarity with other UC workers! We will keep fighting for a fair contract and won’t stop until we’ve won!
