March 1: National Day of Action for Education

UAW Local 2865 knows that our working conditions are inextricably linked to the state of education in California and the US. This spring we’re proud to partner with broad coalitions calling for action to keep the pressure on our elected officials. We are part of the upcoming March 1 actions. Watch our posts on twitter (@uaw2865), our facebook page,  and our event page for details about what members and supporters can do! Please spread the word to your fellow students, department email lists, and on facebook!

From the Occupy Education California call to action: “We call on all students, teachers, workers, and parents from all levels of education — pre-K-12 through higher education in public and private institutions — and all Occupy assemblies, labor unions, and organizations of oppressed communities, to mobilize on March 1st, 2012 across the country to tell those in power: The resources exist for high-quality education for all. If we make the rich and the corporations pay we can reverse the budget cuts, tuition hikes, and attacks on job security, and fully fund public education and social services.

This nationwide call to action is issued in coordination with a Call for a Statewide Day of Action in Defense of Public Education on March 1 in California with statewide actions in Sacramento March 3-8.”
