Support Fund for Striking Workers at UCSC!

On Sunday, Dec 8 2019, UCSC graduate student workers voted for an unauthorized wildcat strike, effectively immediately. Workers will be withholding final grades until administration meets demands for a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA), amounting to a $1,412 increase per month to all graduate students, regardless of residence, visa, documentation, employment, or funding status.

The UCSC chancellor makes over $400,000 a year [1] AND receives a $6,500 housing stipend per month, meanwhile graduate students have to live in one of the most expensive cities in the country [2] on less than $25k a year.

Lend your support to striking grad students as they organize for better conditions for educators, students, and workers everywhere!

NO COLA, NO GRADES! SOLIDARITY FOREVER!
