Brenna Candalaria, Student Academic Advisor III

I feel it is necessary for Academic Advisers in the University of California system (California being the 5th largest economy in the WORLD) to establish a labor union to organize our safety, wages, benefits and equally important to have standards of academic advising working conditions that fosters student success and access to education. As frontline workers in academia we are the bridge between students and the elite education system and in order for us to provide the services that are essential to student success, we need the power of the Union to advocate and negotiate fair working conditions and wages.
