Provost Camfield message to students about possible UAW strike - Nov. 9, 2022

Possible UAW Strike, Nov. 9, 2022

To: All undergraduate students
Nov. 9, 2022

Dear UC Merced Undergraduates,

As you may have heard, the union representing UC Teaching Assistants (TAs), postdocs, Graduate Student Researchers, and undergraduate academic employees (e.g., Learning Assistants, tutors, readers, graders), has given us notice that they intend to strike beginning Monday, November 14 at 8 a.m. The University of California is committed to continuing to negotiate in good faith and reaching full agreements as soon as possible.

As of now, we expect most classes will remain as scheduled, offices will be open, and the campus will provide normal services. Students should plan on attending their classes next week and completing any scheduled assignments or exams.

We know that any chance of disruption to your classes can be stressful, particularly towards the end of the semester. Please know that your success remains our highest priority and we are committed to working towards that end.

We will provide further updates as they become available.



Gregg Camfield, Ph.D.
Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost
