Strike Authorized with Historic Turnout — 96% Vote ‘Yes’!

This past week, campuses across the state participated in a strike authorization vote. We are extremely happy to announce that turnout for this vote was the highest in the union’s history.  ASEs sent a strong message by voting 96% in support of the union leadership calling for a strike if circumstances justify.

Thank you to everyone who participated! These exciting results send a clear message that our union is ready to do what is necessary to defend the UC community. Our contract expired on November 5th, restoring our legal right to strike under certain circumstances.

For more information on the implications of contract expiration, please see this FAQ.

Please be sure to read emails in the coming days and keep appraised of new developments at our Facebook page.

In solidarity,

The Elected Leadership
