Graduate Student Stoppage

After UCSA's endorsement of the walkout, the Graduate Student Organizing Committee also calls for a stoppage in solidarity with the faculty walkout and the UPTE strike. GSOC calls for a suspension of graduate student teaching and official university business on September 24, pending satisfaction of the following demands:
  1. No layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts for salaries under $40,000. This money can be generated through steeper pay cuts to UC’s top earners.
  2. A complete rollback of fees to their 2008-09 level, and a permanent freeze on fee increases beyond the rate of inflation. Student fees can be offset by redirecting surpluses from the revenue-generating sectors of the university.
  3. Full disclosure of the UC budget.
