I am sending you this comment via email because I can’t be in Oakland today. I have a commitment to our students and faculty to carry out my duties as a teacher during this time. Had there been more notice of the meeting I could uphold both my obligations as a teacher and my constitutional rights as a worker. I support UAW Local 2865 and thank the officers for representing me and the other teachers, graders and tutors who make the UC System Work.
