The fate of 41 Fired UCSC grad student workers hinges on mediation between the UC bosses and the union that represents graduate workers (UAW 2865) starting on August 4th. The UCSC 41 could be could be permanently barred from teaching. They rely on teaching assistantships and work as instructors for funding, so they risk being effectively pushed out of the university -- and losing their health insurance during a pandemic. Many are international students who could be deported.
These courageous workers put in on the line for ALL of us, helping win a new $2, 500 housing stipend for all UCSC grad workers, while working in solidarity across many different struggles for justice.
We call on all students, workers, and community members to join us at this event.
