Teamsters at UC Irvine

After five weeks of audio from our archives, Subversity returned Monday 26 July 2010 with a show focusing on labor at UC Irvine. With the recent affiliation of the
clericals' union with the Teamsters, CUE has become CUE-IBT Local 2010, Division #9. CUE-IBT stands for Coalition of University Employees-International Brotherhood of the Teamsters.

We talked with its local president, Dianna Sahhar as well as its organizer, Ann Theurer, about why the union chose to affiliate with the Teamsters, and its implications. We also discussed what are ongoing issues as the union seeks a new contract.

The show aired on 26 July 2010 at 5 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM.
