Columbia, Barnard, and Teacher’s College support staff are protesting today, right now, just north of the gates. UAW 2110’s contracts come up for review this year, and the University is asking for cuts, which the unions do not wish to grant.

A mix of union workers and OccupyCU are walking around, drumming, and shouting things like, “What do we want? Contract! When do we want it? Now!” Signs say things like, “Hands off my pension!” and “CU is the 1%” and “Health care is a right!”

You can see their respective current contracts on the union site, which is pretty cool.
