Dear Colleague,

More great news! UC has officially recognized our union! While we expected this in light of UC previously dropping its objections, it is nonetheless another important step in our effort to win better working conditions. Through collective action and outreach to Federal and State legislators, we have ended UC’s delays and cleared the way to meeting UC administration at the bargaining table.

If you would like to get involved, ask questions, offer feedback, or just learn more, please come to our next campus meeting (see below), or contact us by email.

Lastly, well over 2,000 ARs have already endorsed our initial bargaining demands, but if you haven’t, it is critically important to do so. If you have any questions about the demands themselves, don’t hesitate to contact us.
