To: UCSC Community

From: Chancellor George Blumenthal and Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor Alison Galloway

We are very pleased to report that the University of California and AFSCME reached a tentative agreement late last night that covers more than 8,300 service workers systemwide, including approximately 500 of our own employees.
As a result, AFSCME agreed to call off the five-day strike it had announced for March 3-7 at UC campuses and medical centers.
UC's Office of the President has just issued this press release about last night's negotiating breakthrough.
Thank you.
