There will be a Grade-In/Rally, Tuesday, June 12, 11:30, at Bay Tree Plaza. The UAW Local 2865, the union for TA's at UCSC, is currently bargaining with the university. The main issue right now is getting greater protections against excessive workload. Unfortunately, the university has been dragging its feet on our proposals. The grade-in will serve to dramatize the union's bargaining demands for greater workload protections. One of our main proposals is to link our workloads as TA's to the quality of education of undergraduates -- we want protections against out of control class sizes.

The point is to show the university that we're serious, that we mean business. So bring stuff to grade if you have it, or just come to support demands for greater workload protections. (The contract we're negotiating will be in place for the next three years!)

There is a general membership meeting for the union this Thursday at 5 pm at the Grad Student Commons. All are welcomed!
