UC grad students occupy union hall, train web cams on uncounted ballots -- SHORT BROADCAST VERSION
On Monday, May 2nd, a group of University of California graduate students began a sit-in at their own union hall, UAW Local 2865. The students are demanding the completion of an interrupted vote count in a closely contested race between two slates for union leadership. Since Saturday night when the vote count was halted, the insurgent caucus has been using web cams to monitor the boxes of still uncounted ballots. Late Monday night, KBOO spoke with Jessica Taal, a candidate for Head Steward at UC Davis and a member of the Academic Workers for a Democratic Union caucus, which is challenging the incumbent United for Social and Economic Justice caucus.
