UC WORKERS TO HOLD FIRST-EVER STATEWIDE RALLY,
DEFEND QUALITY EDUCATION, HEALTHCARE, RESEARCH
FROM SAN DIEGO TO Sacramento, University of California workers will hold the
first-ever statewide rally to defend quality education, research and
healthcare on Feb. 26. Members of the Coalition of University Employees
(clerical workers), California Federation of Teachers (UC-AFT Lecturers),
AFSCME, Union of Professional and Technical Employees (CWA), California
Nurses Association and other campus employees will hold lunchtime rallies at
UC, dubbed "California's worst public employer" by a State Legislative panel
nearly three years ago, continues to treat workers unfairly and remain
unaccountable to the public. The State Public Employee Relations Board has
received 69 unfair labor practice charges against UC.
"UC used to stand for quality education, research and healthcare," said
clerical workers' union president Claudia Horning, "But today it stands for
unfair and unaccountable. Workers call on the University to keep its
commitment to employees and the public."
