May 8th: March for Custodian Wage Equity @ UCB

by UC Has the Money!
Custodians at UCSC need your support. After a very unproductive negotiation session with UC Administration last Friday, UC custodians are moving full steam ahead for a Commencement March for Custodian Wage Equity at UC Berkeley on Tuesday, May 8th. UC was given $8.5 million earmarked for custodians on 4 UC campuses, but the administration is only offering a fraction of that. We're aiming to fill a charter bus with workers, students and community members to demand they hand all of the money over. Please join us!
What: Commencement March for Custodian Wage Equity!
When: Tuesday, May 8th @ UC Berkeley
10:00am Watsonville Vanpool: Target Parking lot
10:30am UCSC Vanpool: Bay Tree Plaza
1:00pm Gathering at Lower Sproul Plaza, UC Berkeley

Thanks for your support!!!
