Add comment on:Student Academic Workers Strive to Bring Many Voices When Bargaining with UC Managers
University of California student academic workers from around the state who serve as union negotiators gathered at UC Santa Cruz to meet with UC managers during the second day of the northern California bargaining session on October 22. To bring more voices to the process, a rally at Quarry Plaza was held where speakers were heard, which was followed by a march to the Humanities 1 building. When the large group of mostly graduate students reached the bargaining location, which was on the first floor of the building, managers were hiding on the fourth floor. They kept the crowd waiting for a short period, but did eventually come out after the group sang a round of Melissa Etheridge's "Come to My Window." Management would eventually listen to testimonials from student workers and supporters who lined up to voice their concerns. [Top video: student workers sing "Come to My Window" to UC managers]
