Hundreds of ASEs pack Labor Relations Office

Dear UAW Member,

Today was a powerful bargaining session as around 300 ASEs turned out to demonstrate support and urgency around our proposals concerning anti-discrimination and equity!

When UW Admin came back to the table following the action, they told us that they don’t have the money for 2 ASE positions to coordinate anti-harassment and discrimination trainings, and disrespected us by indicating that our mutually agreed upon deadline to finalize these proposals doesn’t matter.  You can read the full summary of today’s session here.

Our next bargaining session is tomorrow, April 5 from 9am-5pm in Roosevelt Commons West. Come to continue pressing the importance of these issues – make it for all or part to participate and demonstrate your support!  And, if you haven’t done so already, please take a minute to add your name to the equity petition. EQUITY IS NOT OPTIONAL!

In Solidarity,
