On  Wednesday, February 8, 2023 UFCW 770 met with UCSB faculty, community groups, union leaders, and Kent Wong to begin developing a UCSB Labor Center.

Once the Labor Center is fully established, they will be able to support Unions by providing:

  • Research assistance and publishing studies to show the value of unions and why workers need better contracts
  • More labor studies classes and worker training to improve union
  • Student interns who can help unions with research and organizing campaigns.

This was our first group meeting and there’s a lot of excitement around the Labor Center and our future collaborating together. We will keep you updated as this project develops.
