Peter Rickman makes a call to action from the TAA office where undergrads, graduates, and labor activists are coming together to organize for rallies on Tuesday and Wednesday!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

EVENT DETAILS HERE:

MONDAY IS FOR LOVE. TUESDAY IS FOR OUR LIVES! SEE BOTTOM FOR AN UPDATE!

Everything is on the line for a strong UW community:

We thought they were just coming for our higher education funding.

But now, Governor Walker is taking a broad swipe at students and the workers who make our University happen. He proposed a bill that virtually would eliminate the basic human right to collective bargaining for faculty, graduate assistants, academic staff and classified staff

This is an extremist attack on all of us and we have to fight back. This is about OUR University, OUR people, and OUR future. We need students to mobilize and get the backs of public service workers and their unions.
