Lawrence, KS – The KU graduate employee union stands in solidarity with the four bargaining units of precarious and contingent academic workers on strike at the University of California. Public agencies have a special obligation to negotiate in good faith for the people of their state, including the 48,000 residents of California that the UC system has refused to provide a livable wage and affordable housing. To our union sisters of underpaid and exploited workers at the UC campuses, we send you our unwavering support, and want you to know that tens of thousands of academic workers around the country are watching your struggle, drawing inspiration and confidence. Thank you for your sacrifices for the labor movement writ large and for the future of educational workers that we hope to one day realize.
