On Wednesday November 20th AFSCME 3299, a union representing more than 22,000 campus service workers and patient care workers from UC Universities and hospitals, along with the UC Student-Worker Union UAW 2865, students and other allies, marched, picketed and rallied at UCLA’s BruinBear, the Hill and the Ronald Reagan Medical Center.

12This sympathy strike was the result of the wage and benefit cuts that many UC workers are facing along with unfair labor practices at a time when tuition costs keep increasing, but ironically budget cuts have created under-staffing on the jobs.

9Undergrad and Graduate students as well as T.As, professors and employees in general were encouraged to support the strike by not eating in the dining halls, not teaching, not buying at any of UCLA’s student stores and most of all, joining the picket lines and rally.
