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.
