Begin Again: UCSC Wildcat Strike


SANTA CRUZ, California — Graduate students at the University of California, Santa Cruz are organizing in order to survive the rising cost of living in the city while suffering the backslide in wages most recently exemplified by the weak 2018 contract for Teaching Assistants. An unprecedented wildcat (i.e. unsanctioned) strike is now unfolding, with the demand that the University ameliorate this burden with a ‘Cost of Living Adjustment’ or #COLA. The grading strike was declared on Sunday, December 8th, but will most likely face the most pressure on December 18th when TAs are expected to submit the final grades for the courses they are employed to assist.
