Wed Mar 10 2010 AFSCME Advocates for Rehiring Workers, Stopping Fee Increases & Ending Privatization
Low Wage UC Service Workers Pressure Regent Richard Blum On March 9th at Golden Gate National Recreational Area's Fort Baker in Marin County, nearly a hundred UC service workers, students and supporters from UCB, UCSF, UCSC, and UC Davis entered the hired meeting space of Blum Capital Partnership, the Cavallo Point Lodge, and picketed the street in front. Richard Blum is a UC regent and the husband of California Senator Diane Feinstein.

The National Park Service finally ordered protesters off park grounds. No arrests were made, but Blum was once again called on his failure to end poverty at UC. AFSCME advocates for rehiring the workforce, stopping student fee increases, and ending the privatization scheme, and wants Blum and the Regents to stop playing on Wall Street with California citizen-owned assets.
