We Are 99%: Join In Campus Protests November 9 and 16
Students, staff and faculty are all part of the 99%. We want to protect our benefits and jobs and the public service we provide for California. On November 9, UPTE is participating in demonstrations on every campus. Come participate and bring your co-workers. Let’s make a statement that the 99% are paying attention.
On November 16, buses will be going from all Northern California campuses to the UC Regents meeting in San Francisco and from all Southern California campuses to the CSU Trustees meeting in Long Beach. Sign up with your UPTE activists to get a seat on the bus.
Not only do these events support the nationwide and worldwide movement to have the wealthy pay the taxes they should, but also tell UC we will not accept the massive erosion of our benefits when our contract expires.
APs Want A Union
This campaign for a union contract for an additional 16,500 UC employees will take an enormous effort from everyone in UPTE. We want all zone contacts to talk to an AP in their area and get a card. Those in the TX/RX/HX units can point to the excellent contracts we have achieved as the best reason for a union.
