UC and UAW reach tentative agreement; systemwide strike averted

I am very happy to inform you that the United Auto Workers, representing academic student employees, has agreed not to strike — an action that could have occurred throughout the UC system as early as this Saturday, June 7. A short while ago, UC's Office of the President announced that UC and the union had reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.
With finals week potentially impacted by a strike, it is very good news that our students can complete their spring-quarter work with the valuable support of our teaching assistants.
I wish to thank the campus community for their patience and understanding during this period of uncertainty.
