Petition against the 36 UC executives’ threat to sue for more money!

(From SAVE UCLA!)

Many of you have heard about the recent letter from 36 of the UC’s top executives threatening to sue the university for higher pensions, even though they already earn over $245K/year in salary + $183K/year in pensions. This letter comes right after UC workers were asked to contribute to their pensions for the first time since 1990 and TAs received a new contract with a real wage decrease and no retirement benefits whatsoever.

Please take a moment to sign the petition against this outrageous threat!
