Low-wage Service Workers at UCSC Need Your Support to Win a Fair Contract!

On Wednesday November 10th, the Members of Local 3299 AFSCME will be having a major rally when UC representatives come to the campus for state-wide bargaining. The rally will take place at 12:00 noon in front of the Baytree Bookstore on the UCSC campus.

Over 7,000 UC Service Workers and Local 3299 AFSCME Members serve food; clean bathrooms, dorms, labs, offices, and hospitals; drive shuttle buses, and park cars at the nine UC campuses and five medical centers. Their contract with UC expired June 30, 2004, and UC has so far rejected all proposals to improve it. Workers are demanding more support for the quality services that we provide, a fair pay system with steps that respect our years of experience, and a real chance to advance.

The median wage for UC Service Workers is $12.05 per hour, and 22% earn less than $10 per hour. Here at UCSC, 93% of the 550 Service Workers earn less than the living wage for Santa Cruz County of $16.88 as determined by the California Budget Project. And like many UC workers, they are laid off during holiday and summer breaks.

Why the long face? - Miami Journal #5

I'm sitting in the airport early Wednesday morning and the election is still too close to call. Electoral College votes are 254 Bush, 252 Kerry, with Bush carrying 51% of the popular vote to Kerry's 49%. Maps of the country show an enormous sea of red, with blue stripes down either coast. We're all waiting on Ohio.
