Monday, November 14th, marked the beginning of a UC-wide, open-ended strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, aiming to raise the minimum salary for postdoctoral scholars, academic researchers, academic student employees (teaching assistants/readers/tutors), and graduate student researchers.
Picketers have been marching across campus with their signs, and forming picket lines at some entrances to the campus and buildings. The strike is open-ended, meaning there is no set end date. We encourage all members of the Berkeley Optometry & Vision Science community to read our university’s official update, which includes more information on what to expect during the UAW strike.
