Keep drinking that Socialist union kool-aid . . . strike indeed. If you do not like the pay, benefits, or working conditions, get a job in the real world...

I didn't think so.

Re: UPTE Strike at UCSC on May 26th! (re: CUE)

it looks like CUE either hasn't finished with their vote or the vote was not sufficient to the terms of their contract (40% of members voting, 2/3rds of that voting yes). there's nothing more recent than early may on their website. ??

One day until the strike, and the UPTE leadership wishes to thank all of your for your work and solidarity. This is UPTE's third strike.

Although UPTE has not been highly visible in the last two years among our brothers and sisters in the University Labor United, we are a strong union with a tradition that goes back to our first strike on the day of MRC's Greenwood's investiture. Our strike prevented the keynote speaker to that event, Leon Panetta, from attending, and resulted a few weeks later in our first contract. We did that with 40 people at UCSC, alone, not with our Statewide organization.

Now we ask you to stand with us on Thursday.

Our vision for the strike is hundreds of people who will demonstrate to the community our strength in collective action.

We want our strike to be about showing our strength and solidarity. We want people to have to come through our picket line if that is what they choose to do.

We do not want to give the police the opportunity to divert traffic and thus diminish the effect of our work and solidarity.

The administration has told us that they are afraid that our strike will get hijacked by some outside group. I think this speaks to their notion
that we are weak and can be pushed around by bully with a megaphone.

We all know that if anyone tried to take our event over, we, as a coalition of union members and students, will not participate in civil disobedience that -- honorable and effective as it is -- is not what this UPTE strike is about.

See you all May 26, 6 am to 6 pm.
Main Gate. West Gate.
