Grade Strike to be Announced May 31

On May 31st, If we have not resolved our disputes over escalating Unfair Labor Practices committed by UC Management and Administration, our union will call announce a strike beginning on the Saturday before finals and continuing to the end of this term. Such a strike would involve withholding labor for the duration of the work stoppage, including, but not limited to, grading, entering grades, proctoring exams, and holding office hours. Withholding all labor is within your rights.

Please keep updated through emails, this blog, and union representatives for more information regarding the strike, and feel free to contact the union at with any questions or concerns.

Irvine will be holding its Monthly Membership Meeting on Friday, May 31, at 4:00 pm in Donald Bren Hall, room 4011. We encourage all members to attend to gather more information on the strike. Additional agenda items include meeting our newly-elected officers, updates on contract bargaining, and planning for our Rally for the Contract (Tuesday, June 3rd, noon at the flagpoles).
