Support University Workers
Please consider a donation to the U Clerical Hardship Fund for striking workers who need help meeting their expenses.
We are fortunate that we won't need to draw from this fund...but a lot of other AFSME workers are not. A lot of them support their families on $12/hour jobs at the University. They can't afford to strike, but they can't afford their health care costs to go up, either.
It is true that University funding has been slashed by the state government, and the U has to make ends meet somehow. But why should the least among them bear the brunt of the pain? Like the grocery store strike/lockout in California, this is a fight to keep working people in the middle class.
