THOUSANDS OF UC WORKERS WILL RALLY WEDNESDAY MORNING OUTSIDE REGENTS’ MEETING AT UCLA
Los Angeles – At 9:30 am on Wednesday, December 14th, thousands of striking academic workers, faculty, undergraduates and labor allies will rally outside UCLA’s Luskin Center to call on the Regents – who will be meeting inside the center at that time – to ensure that fair contracts are reached and guarantee that UC becomes equitable for all. Tom Morello (the lead guitarist from rock band Rage Against the Machine) will perform at the rally.
Press is welcome to attend.
“On the 31st day of this strike, we are demonstrating to the Regents that we will not stop fighting until they ensure UC comes to the table with offers that fairly reflect our contributions,” said Kaija Gahm, a Student Researcher in the Department of Ecology at UCLA. “With the continued support of the California Labor movement, our students, and the broader community, we are demanding a UC that works for all of us – not just wealthy administrators.”
WHERE: Outside UCLA’s Luskin Center
WHEN: Wednesday, December 14 at 9:30am
