Dear Colleague,

Great news! Yesterday our Strike Authorization Vote concluded with 2,501 total votes cast by Academic Researchers (ARs), and 2,402 (96%) of ARs voting Yes. This means that a majority of all UC Academic Researchers have voted to authorize the Bargaining Team to call a strike if circumstances justify.

Thank you to everyone for taking the time to participate.
