UC graduate students and service workers strike

Service workers, patient care workers, and graduate students throughout the UC system went on a 24-hour strike. The American Federation of State County and Municipal Employees Local 3299 called for the protest in response to alleged intimidation tactics used by the UC to prevent workers from participating in a May strike.

Graduate students assemble at Wheeler Hall, affirming their solidarity with AFSCME workers. At around 12 am, they joined service and patient care workers on the steps of Sproul Plaza.
