demanding more money for housing Veronica Hamilton is a UC Santa Cruz graduate student she was not among those fired but she is the unit share of the students union UAW local twenty eight sixty five and she joins me now by phone good morning good morning why don't we begin with just your reaction to what happened on Friday how are students dealing with this myself like most other people on our campus were shocked and angered outraged by what happened on Friday the disciplinary letters for forty four graduate students came in to my inbox as well as the unit chair but then we also saw an undisclosed number of more that we're told that they would not be re hired next quarter we expect the number to be closer to eighty and and it's not clear why those other people were fired even though they turned in their grades well there's no clear process for determining how they were chosen to get fired I know several who turned in grades and still got fired existing let me get your reaction to what the administration is saying they'll see that in twenty eighteen the contract that was negotiated included a no strike clause that students aren't honoring that part of the contract and that that's why they didn't sit down at the table to negotiate what's your response to that well there's also some parts of the contract that say that some articles maybe don't apply if there are emergency or crisis situations I think that this is a crisis situation I think that hundreds of graduate students started to withhold flavor because they're in crisis and I think that response by the administration is really disgraceful in that crisis you're talking about is the housing costs that so many Californians are dealing with right now this seems to be spreading to other UC campuses UC Santa Barbara students have now started a strike on their own what's your perspective on whether what happened on Friday is going to potentially did her other students elsewhere in the UC system from going on strike I think mostly what I've heard from across the state is that people are emboldened by this action by the university I think we're gonna see a lot more people go on strike and that's what have and at Santa Cruz every escalation by strikers at Santa Cruz what's the reaction to disciplinary threats and I think we're gonna see that spread across the state all right Veronica Hamilton
