FAIR WORKPLACE NOW: Rally for Respect!
We have all heard the horror stories. A supervising professor in Physics belittles his Teaching Assistants in front of their students and coworkers; an international Student Researcher in MAE is unjustly fired and loses their visa; a Postdoc is fired from their lab when they tell their supervisor they are pregnant.
Almost 50,000 academic workers are now in contract negotiations with UC, fighting for a university where anyone can thrive. UC is proposing to DO NOTHING about the crushing rent burden they have imposed on us with low wages and high rents; TAKE AWAY workers’ right to use our grievance process to address sexual harassment and discrimination; and to INCREASE our healthcare costs.
It’s time to show UC that we are united, and we are not backing down until they END THE ABUSE and create a FAIR WORKPLACE FOR ALL.
