My name is Trevor Griffey. I love teaching Labor Studies at UCLA and U.S. History at UC Irvine.
Most UC lecturers are not given sufficient appointments to earn a living wage. Most of us don’t receive health benefits from UC. Most of us have short-term contracts. Because of this mistreatment, turnover is common.
Now with COVID-19, UC is threatening to lay off hundreds of us and cut us off from our health care on June 30, 2020, even if enrollment remains constant. And because we’re temporary employees, they don’t even call these actions layoffs.
We are organizing to fight back.Please join us!
