Hello everyone,

Sorry for the barrage of Students for Labor Solidarity (SLS) related messages these past few days. I hope you find them informative and helpful. Here's some info about the CUE & AFT Strike Picket Lines:

=CUE & AFT will have Picket Lines in effect on Monday Oct 14 & Tuesday Oct 15 from 6am to 8pm at both UCSC entrances. ANY TIME during the day that you can come by (even if its just for an hour), your presence would really be meaningful.

=Many students (over 2,000) have pledged their solidarity with CUE & AFT, and have agreed not to cross the Picket Line, which is amazing! But we also need a lot of students to come out and be on the picket line, so that the administration, the media, the community, and our fellow students know that we are serious about making our campus a more just community for everyone.

=In addition, CUE will have picket lines operating at the University Town Center (downtown Santa Cruz) & at UC-Extension offices in Corralitos & Cupertino from 6am to 6pm.

=The Picket Lines are explicitly NON-VIOLENT & POROUS. What does this mean? Anyone who wishes to cross the Picket Line, while obviously being discouraged to, will be allowed to cross peacefully. This is really important because there will be folks who will need to cross the line to get on campus; whether they are students whose professors would not cancel classes or whether they are union members who can not financially afford to go two days without pay, it is vital for the long-term success of labor unions on campus that we show a lot of respect (even to those folks who cross the Picket Line).

=There will be rallies on both days at the main entrance of UCSC from 12noon to 1:30pm with music, singing, speakers, chanting, lots of media coverage, and FUN!

=If you want to help flyer the campus, please come to the main entrance at 10am on monday and you will be provided with a staple gun & a handful of flyers. (CUE & AFT really need help with this, so if you can do it that would be great!)

=There will be a lot of media at the Picket Line, pleas remember that if you are interviewed, the focus of these strikes is not money. Rather, both CUE & AFT are striking because of ILLEGAL BAD FAITH BARGAINING by the University of California. This is an UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE STRIKE.

=This will be the BIGGEST STRIKE in UCSC history! And rumor has it that UCSC is the most organized campus for this upcoming systemwide strike (which is also taking place simultaneously on 5 other UC campuses), so if we come out with a big showing in these next few days we could make this
the BIGGEST STRIKE in UC history! Let's get fired up!

Well, that's it for now.
More info will come shortly.
See you on all the line!
Thanks again!

In Solidarity,
Max

My Mistake! ILLEGAL BAD FAITH BARGAINING! UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE STRIKE!

I found the "wages, not fair, strike" clip art on the web while researching the Labor Dispute. I think I found it on either the CUE or AFT website.

Anyways, I now realize that it is not the appropriate clip-art for this article since the SLS message states:

"There will be a lot of media at the Picket Line, please remember that if you are interviewed, the focus of these strikes is not money. Rather, both CUE & AFT are striking because of ILLEGAL BAD FAITH BARGAINING by the University of California. This is an UNFAIR LABOR PRACTICE STRIKE."

Sorry for the confusion.

Sincerely,
Bradley
