Add comment on:Student Workers Reach Historic Contract Agreement, UCSC Finals Week Strike Canceled
via UAW 2865
Without a contract since September, Student Workers represented by UAW Local 2865 finally reached an agreement with the University of California on June 3. As a result, a finals week strike called for at UC Santa Cruz has been called off. Student workers have won a new contract with wage increases, a joint labor-management committee is to be established to regulate class sizes, and undocumented graduate student workers will have new access to scholarships to provide equal pay. Their social justice demands were addressed and met, which has long included demands for all-gender restrooms for transgender and genderqueer students.
