Ariella and 10,999 other University of California teaching assistants will strike on Thursday.
Although Los Angeles has had its share of labor disputes recently (the MTA bus strike was settled a couple of weeks ago and the Ralph’s/Vons/Albertson’s strike/lockout has been going on for 8 weeks now), this thing is gonna be statewide. TAs from all eight UC campuses will stop grading papers and exams. Just in time for finals!
[Update 03 December: the union has reached a tentative agreement with the UC so the strike has been called off.]
