Starting October 10 and continuing through October 20, UAW-UC Academic Workers will be voting on whether to combine UAW 2865 and UAW 5810 into ONE BIG UNION (also known as amalgamation). This is a historic opportunity to build wall-to-wall power, and it’s critical that all members participate in this decision. 

The Amalgamation Exploratory Committee is hosting two info sessions over the next two weeks: 10/4 at 5:30 PM and 10/10 at 10 AM. Please RSVP below to join!

Register for 10/4 Info Session
Register for 10/10 Info Session

The executive boards of both locals have already voted unanimously to endorse amalgamation. You can read a comprehensive amalgamation vote FAQ here. And please make sure you sign up for an amalgamation vote info session on October 4th or October 10th.

In solidarity,
