Where in the country are front line workers being forced to take layoffs, pay cuts, and benefit cuts while top executives are getting bonuses? When these workers join together to fight this, where in the country are public officials calling for an end to collective bargaining?

Did you say Wisconsin? Think again.

University of California Regent David Crane is demanding to END the right for public sector workers to join together under one voice to advocate for our students, patients, and families. Additionally, UC executives have spent $3.5 million on a union busting law firm to take away basic rights – such as the right to strike. UC has even banned union buttons and stickers at the UC Irvine Medical Center.

While UC officials continue to give extra pay and retirement perks to executives, they want to cut vital services by laying off staff, and rolling back wages and benefits. Some workers make as little as $26,000 a year and fear being forced out of their homes because of the drastic cuts.
