East Bay DSA Stands With UC Workers on Strike!
Date Tuesday October 23
Time 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location Details
Sproul Plaza 2500 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA, 94704
Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorEast Bay Democratic Socialists of America
On October 23, more than 35,000 University of California workers across the state will be walking off the job!

Pickets will happen all day at Sproul Plaza on October 23 through 25. We are particularly encouraging people to show up for a rally at noon on Tuesday, October 23.

Patient care workers from AFSCME 3299 — backed up with a solidarity strike by other AFSCME service workers and UPTE technical workers — are demanding improvements on wages and working conditions, no cutbacks on benefits, and an end to management's weaponization of inequalities of race, gender, and immigration status to exploit and intimidate workers.

Back in May, East Bay DSA showed up big to the AFSCME and UPTE strike, and we are going to do so again!

Please sign up for the Labor Committee's Rapid Response system if you'd like to receive text messages that let you know about labor actions around the East Bay.

Accessibility: The UC campus is ADA-accessible. This will be a live picket line. If you have any questions please contact labor [at] eastbaydsa.org.
