A new coalition of rank-and-file workers (including service workers, librarians, GSI, technical workers, and clerical workers) and students is calling a meeting this Monday July 20th to discuss and organize against the proposed cuts to classes, possible lay offs, tuition hikes, furloughs, etc.Added to the calendar on Saturday Jul 18th, 2009 4:20 PM
Monday's meeting will provide a critical space to orchestrate the united resistance of workers and students.
We recognize that neither cuts nor tuition hikes have ever saved jobs or quality of education. In fact, the recent history of tuition hikes clearly shows us that each time we accept a new fee increase it paves the way for more in the future. The Regents have consistently raised student tuition year after year in the absence of united student opposition.
We are publishing a newsletter written by workers and students that documents our fight, presents our demands, and will serve to organize and strengthen our struggle. It is attached. Please forward, print and distribute it widely.
One Struggle! One Fight! Students and Workers Unite!
