Sat Sep 27 2008 UC low-wage workers visit new UC President Yudof bearing pancakes
University of California Workers Protest Poverty Wages On Saturday. September 27th at 11am, nearly a hundred workers from local UC campuses - including members of UPTE, the University Professional and Technical Employees union- converged in the Oakland hills to make pancakes for newly appointed president Mark Yudof at his Oakland Hills mansion on Woodmont Way. They demanded Yudof come out and explain how he intends to end poverty wages at the University of California.

AFSCME workers at all ten campuses and five hospitals have been in contract negotiations with UC management for nearly a year and even though ninety percent of the workforce is eligible for public assistance, UC executives have not moved.
