Thread regarding University of California at Berkeley layoffs

Strike looming for struggling part-timers

"After more than two years of stalled negotiations, 6,000 University of California lecturers are preparing to strike. The lecturers do one-third of all teaching but earn just a fraction of what their tenure-track counterparts do, with little in the way of job security. "I just want a living wage," said Jasper Bernes, a lecturer at the UC-Berkeley after an October 13 informational picket organized by the University Council American Federation of Teachers (UC-AFT)."

And there is more. "About 17,000 graduate student researchers calling themselves Student Researchers United (SRU) at 10 University of California campuses are seeking to form a union with the United Auto Workers, a campaign that began in early 2020."
