UVA employees form anti-racism union
University of Virginia hospital employees are unionizing under an organization that pushes for “anti-racism.”
United Campus Workers of Virginia sent a “Workplace Fairness Survey” to UVA Health employees, according to a November 12 press release.
The survey was “confidential,” and informed workers on how to join the union.
Workers cite “top down approaches to management, inadequate staffing and subpar wages as reasons for seeking to organize hospital workers” in the survey, says the release.
United Campus Workers of Virginia is “a union organizing to empower all public college and university workers in the Commonwealth,” according to its website. It has recently been working to “adopt demands from anti-racist and Covid-related campaigns at UVA and in Charlottesville,” the press release states.
In August, its #ActFastUVA campaign decried the university for doing “too little, too late” in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and anti-black racism.
“Austerity, the idea that we must cut spending and save every cent in order to keep UVA afloat, is absurd,” said the union in its list of demands, which included a firing freeze and additional compensation to student employees. “The flagship university of the Commonwealth of Virginia, with ample assets and ways to fund losses in revenue, is essentially too big to fail.”
