Workers are demanding her resignation and also a stop to union busting, outsourcing and privatization
Dozens of UC workers and students protested at the UC Regents meeting on May 17, 2017 at the UC Mission Bay campus about the growing corruption scandal of UC President Janet Napolitano who engaged in an attempted manipulation of a CA state audit and cover-up of $175 million in public funds that were kept secret.
While conspiring to cover-up this money from the CA State Auditors, she and the UC Regents were increasing the registration fees of students, contracting out and privatizing tech and other services as well as attacking the defined pension plans of UC workers. Some like the clericals represented by IBT 2010 have accepted a two tier pension system forcing newly hired employees into 401K pension plans.
The students and workers talked about their dire economic conditions including some students going hungry in one of the richest places in the world.
Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who is a UC Regent said the audit was too strict and that UC president Janet Napolitano was doing a good job.
