On November 8, 2022 a joint announcement was released to inform faculty and staff of an upcoming scheduled strike beginning Monday, Nov. 14.
University of California (UC) academic appointees across the system associated with the United Auto Workers (UAW) union - including UCLA postdoctoral scholars, academic researchers, academic student employees (ASEs) and graduate student researchers (GSRs), declared their intention to initiate a strike of indefinite duration. The strike comes as the UC and the UAW continue collective-bargaining negotiations for contracts covering workers in the four bargaining units.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to continue academic operations during the strike. Information and resources to support student learning, maintain research operations, and mitigate other impacts of the strike are available here: UC-UAW Box folder. Specific questions not addressed in the materials provided can be directed to: email@example.com.
