Take Action

Support UC Librarians!

banner saying "take action!" united for a better uc

It’s important to take action and be actively involved in the union, whether you are a UC-AFT member or an ally who wishes to show support and solidarity.

This page includes resources to help you take action in a variety of ways. Over the coming months, we hope you will join us in advocating for librarians at the University of California.


Solidarity Pledge:

I stand with UC-AFT librarians in their fight for a fair contract. Our librarians are the human engine that powers library collections, services, and spaces at our university. They deserve professional recognition and compensation that reflects the vital role they play in the teaching and research mission of UC.

I call on President Drake to invest in the teaching and research mission of our university. I’m ready to step up for the librarians who have stepped up for students.
