University of California Researchers and Scholars Go on Strike in Largest Walkout in U.S. Higher Education History

From a story on by Blake Jones ans Sakura Cannestra headlined “University of California academic workers strike over wages and benefits in largest walkout in U.S. higher education”:

University of California academic workers walked off the job Monday across the 10-campus system, seeking higher wages and better benefits in what organizers are calling the largest strike in the history of U.S. higher education.

Bargaining units for nearly 50,000 teaching assistants, researchers and other scholars failed to reach a contract that met union demands amid soaring housing costs and inflation for people who provide much of the instruction for undergraduates in the system.
