Hello Everyone,

Well, the first day of the two-day CUE & AFT Strike went GREAT! During the noontime rally there were 500 people there, and throughout the day, a 1000 people were part of the picket lines. We went and looked around on campus today, and it was deserted -- a ghost town!
We shut the place down!

Super duper thank yous to everyone of you who came out today, you're awesome! Members of both CUE & AFT have asked me to pass on their deepest appreciation for your support!

Tomorrow is even more important than today, we need even more people to come out tomorrow to show the University that
we're serious, and that this is just the start of something much bigger.

So, if you weren't able to come out today, PLEASE come out tomorrow and see what all the excitrment is about!
And if you did come out today, PLEASE come back tomorrow with a few friends!

Today was the biggest STRIKE in UCSC history -- let's make it even BIGGER tomorrow!

Come be a part of history!

Picket lines will be operating at both entrances from 6am to 8pm, with a rally at the main entrance from 12noon to 1:30 pm. If you can even come out for just an hour, you're presence would be greatly appreciated by both unions.

If you have any questions/comments/concerns please email me or call 469-3623.

Thank you all,
and please pass on the word.
See you on the line!

In solidarity,
Max
