HeadlineFeb 25, 2020

The University of California, Santa Cruz, announced it will provide graduate student workers with a stipend of $2,500, in response to a wildcat strike protesting the unaffordable costs of living on low teaching salaries. Organizers welcomed the announcement but said they would continue to push for additional compensation, to expand the financial relief to other campuses and to negotiate the terms of any agreement as part of a union contract.
