UPTE Strike 2009


A one-day strike has planned by the union of academic employees, UPTE, throughout the whole UC System. The CUE has declared a sympathy strike, and many other groups including graduate and undergraduate students are planning class walkouts. All on the first day of the 2009-2010 school year, September 24, 2009.

Our campus will have a [WWW]Rally on the Quad at noon, in addition to UPTE picket lines (and supporters) that morning.
