CUE Union Sets Strike
For Next Week at UC

Leaders of the Coalition of University Employees (CUE) labor union have announced their intent for members to strike at University of California campuses and Berkeley Lab next Monday through Wednesday. The union represents about 240 employees, primarily clerical, at the Lab. The University of California has issued a statement that this would be an unlawful action, since impasse has not yet been declared by either party in contract negotiations. Go here for UC answers to employee questions regarding the proposed strike. Further information will be provided in tomorrow's edition of Today at Berkeley Lab.
