Strike Authorization Vote
March 7, 2019 @ 8:00 am - March 18, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Faculty and grads took our job action survey and the results show that an overwhelming majority support taking a strike authorization vote. The Union’s Executive Council therefore has voted to run an official, secret vote to authorize a strike. Even if you have taken the survey, it is necessary for you to vote in this official strike vote. You have received an email from our secure system with a unique link for each of you (so that no one can cast their vote twice) with one question. Please take five seconds to click on that link and cast your ballot.
This vote—which will take place according to the bylaws of the union—would empower the leadership to call a job action, up to and including a strike, if necessary. We have worked hard to secure a good contract for our members and we have come to this point because logic, research and patience have not worked. We urge you to vote yes because it sends a strong message to the Barchi administration that we will not settle for anything less than a fair and just contract.
