Graduate students across the University of California system are leading a BDS campaign through the graduate student worker union, UAW 2865 that represents 13000 teaching assistants, tutors, and readers. The union will be holding a membership vote on December 4th on pushing for UAW and UC divestment and individual support for the academic boycott of Israeli academic institutions. Winning this vote would mark the first time a union in the US would officially support BDS — a powerful message for the US and Israeli government.
