History Department Resolution in support of UC Graduate Student Associations negotiation

On Wednesday, October 19, 2022, the History Department unanimously passed the following resolution:

“The History Department hereby resolves to urge the UCSB administration to pressure UCOP to bargain with the UAW in good faith and to take the bargaining position of the UC Graduate Student Associations seriously. This is necessary to bring UC’s graduate student employee salary scale into line with that of our comparison institutions, to account for the cost of living in California, and to keep pace with the rate of inflation especially in rents and cost of living. This would not only avoid an extremely disruptive strike, but enable UC to better compete with comparison universities around the country for the best graduate students and achieve its goals of excellence.”
