UAW Local 4123 Student Workers Strike Postponed
Never underestimate the power of solidarity. What’s that saying? The students united, will never be defeated! The following update was posted on the UAW Local 4123 website:
STRIKE POSTPONED: SENATE PRESIDENT STEINBERG TO WORK WITH UAW/CSU ON REACHING AGREEMENT
Senate President Pro Tempore Darrell Steinberg has called on UAW Local 4123 to and the CSU to sit down with him in an effort to reach resolution on the current contract dispute. The bargaining team has agreed to postpone the strike, originally scheduled to begin at 7 AM, December 10, pending these meetings with the University and Senate President Pro Tempore Steinberg.
We believe that Senate President Steinberg will be a helpful influence on negotiations, and will move CSU administrators to bargain lawfully and help us reach agreement on a fee waiver. The Senator has been supportive of a fee waiver benefit for ASEs (see his letter to CSU administrators here: http://www.uaw4123.org/news/files/Steinberg_Letter_10272008.jpg, and
we look forward to working with him and CSU to reach a settlement.
We will continue to keep you updated as these meetings progress.
