Dear Colleague,

More Support for ARU / UAW 5810 from State Legislators
Last Friday, thanks to outreach by Academic Researchers (Project Scientists, Researchers, Specialists, and Coordinators of Public Programs) over the past few weeks, state legislators representing UC campuses sent a letter to UC President Janet Napolitano urging UC to stop stalling and recognize our union! The growing support from our state’s political leaders and their willingness to take that support public is another clear indication that UC must recognize the democratic will of Academic Researchers (ARs) to form a union. You can read the full letter by clicking here or on the image.

Support Our Bargaining Demands
In only two weeks, approximately 2,000 Academic Researchers have already endorsed our Initial Bargaining Demands. If you’ve not yet done so, would you please consider doing so today? In order to maximize our leverage during bargaining, it’s imperative that a majority of all ARs add their names.

In solidarity,

Academic Researchers United / UAW 5810
