Monthly Membership Meeting: October

communications : October 6, 2013 1:17 pm : Campus Meetings, Davis, X

You are invited to the first Monthly Membership Meeting of the 2013-2014 academic year

Tuesday October 15, at the Orchard Park Community Center, from 5:30-7:00.

Come meet other grads and learn about what the union is up to.

There will be food and light refreshments. Partners and children are welcome.

On the agenda will be:

1. Greet new members / Introduction to the Union

2. Bargaining update and discussion

3. Updates from committees (ex. anti-oppression committee)

4. Planning actions (for the contract campaign) for the quarter

We can’t do it without you! It takes membership involvement to have a strong union to win our bargaining demands, come learn about the various ways you can get involved, no matter what kind of time commitments you can make (from light to very involved). A membership meeting is a great place to start getting involved in the contract campaign in your own way.

Hope to see you there,

The elected officers of Davis UAW 2865


UAW2865 Demands More All-Gender Restrooms at the University of California

communications : September 14, 2013 5:25 pm : Anti Oppression Committee, Bargaining, Berkeley, Campus Units, Current Campaigns, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT), gender non-conforming and queer-identified students and workers face discrimination at the University of California every day due to the lack of a sufficient number of all-gender restrooms on every UC campus. People who vary in gender/sexuality—trans* people, trans-masculine and trans-feminine people, intersex people, two-spirit people, butch lesbians and women, femme men and gender non-conforming people—often are met with hostility and violence when they use single-gender public restrooms. Moreover, people with disabilities who need personal assistants of a different gender and parents with children of differing genders often face harassment when accessing gender-specific public restrooms.

All people have the right to be respected and affirmed in their gender identities and expressions. Nobody should experience disability- or gender-related harassment when using the restroom, a basic health need. As students and workers, people with disabilities and trans* and gender non-conforming people at the UC have the basic right to study and work in an environment that is not detrimental to their health. Ensuring that all UC students and workers have access to a restroom that is free of hostility, harassment, intimidation and violence is a necessity.

We demand that the University of California respect the sexual and gender
diversity of its student body and workforce by providing at least one all-gender,
wheelchair accessible restroom in every campus building.
