On Thursday, April 14, AFSCME Local 3299, is planning a one-day strike. AFSCME represents service employees vital to the functioning of UC Berkeley. It represents many of the lowest paid workers on campus. The union is currently struggling for a fair contract and workers' (especially immigrant workers') rights.

Show your solidarity with campus workers! DON'T CROSS THE PICKET LINES ON APRIL 14!

Join us on TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 7PM AT 102 WURSTER (UC BERKELEY) for a SCREENING OF THE MOVIE PRECARITY TO BENEFIT THE AFSCME STRIKE. PRECARITY is a collection of films documenting the struggle of precarious workers around the world.

On THURSDAY, APRIL 14, join us for a student and community FLYING PICKET. We will MEET AT NOON AT THE AFSCME RALLY ON SPROUL PLAZA. The flying picket will be a mobile contingent that will reinforce stationary pickets and take other forms of action in solidarity with striking workers. We will form the flying picket at the end of the noon AFSCME rally.
