Teamsters And Allies Protest UC Pay Cut

Staff Tells Board of Regents: 'No Way, We Won't Pay'

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, November 13 , at 7:30 am, Teamsters and their allies in the UC Administrative Professionals Network will be attending the University of California Board of Regents Meeting to speak out against a proposed pay cut for administrative professionals employed by the UC System. The pay cut, a 1.5 percent increase to employee retirement contributions, would impose an undue financial burden on many workers who are already having difficulty keeping up with California's increasingly high cost of living.

Members of both organizations will be available for interviews during the event.
