At the Membership Meeting on March 8th, Berkeley Members resolved to support the workers of Wisconsin and the call for a General Strike, if that’s what it takes to protect collective bargaining for public workers. Check out the full resolution here. We also passed a resolution protesting the nomination of David Crane to the UC Board of Regents, check it out. Tomorrow we have an opportunity to show our support!
Join us Wednesday to protect collective bargaining, stop the appointment of anti-union multi-millionare David Crane to the UC Board of Regents and support Wisconsin workers!!
Wisconsin’s governor Scott Walker passed legislation that will take away workers’ right to collective bargaining while slashing workers’ pay and benefits. Wisconsin workers have been fighting against these attacks and have called for national solidarity.
Meanwhile multi-millionare David Crane – UC regents designate – wants to end collective bargaining for California’s teachers, nurses, firefighters and other public workers. State Senator Leland Yee says “Crane promotes a very dangerous agenda that would harm working families in California” and that “Crane should not be seated at the next Board of Regents meeting on March 15, 2011.”
In addition, UAW members will continue to protest UC administration’s backdoor cuts to fee remission and expenditure on instruction, under the guise of “benefits decentralization”.
