    November 13, 2019  6:00 am - 6:00 pm
    2495 Bancroft Way, Berkeley, CA 94704, USA

    JOIN US ON THE PICKET LINE! SOLIDARITY SUPPORT FOR AFSCME 3299 AGAINST THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT BERKELEY AT 2495 BANCROFT WAY, BERKELEY ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH AT 6AM-6PM RALLY AT 12PM!!!

    The Alameda Labor Council, AFL-CIO has granted strike sanctions to AFSCME 3299 against the University of California - Berkeley.  UC is growing, expanding, and making more profits, all at the expense of workers' future. 

    UC has done it again. It has violated state law and its collective bargaining agreements with its workers by committing new unfair labor practices (ULPs). The recent filing of six new ULP charges exposes UC's secretive efforts to illegally outsource work to outside contractors. 

     

    Members of AFSCME 3299 are not going to sit by and allow UC to think it' above the law, and that's why on November 13th they'll be going on strike to hold UC accountable, and they need you to stand by them as they fight to #EndUCsOutsourcingNOW!

Take Action

From Our Secretary

As we move into 2018, amidst the framework of contract fights, state-wide and local elections, and a Supreme Court decision that will likely severely impact labor unions, it is now more important than ever to build on the strength of our labor council. Our strategic vision is to move beyond a reactionary approach to supporting our locals and into proactively leading on issues with an impact on and beyond Alameda County that can set the national stage for the rest of labor.
