Solidarity with AWCA
May 16, 2023
The Working-Class Studies Association and the Working-Class Academics (WCA) section express solidarity with the Alliance of Working-Class Academics (AWCA).
AWCA has launched a petition to include social-class in anti-discrimination policy.
British citizens and UK residents who are WCSA and WCA members are encouraged to participate in this action. Just sign the above petition by May 31st.
Solidarity with WGA Strike!
The WCSA executive committee has voted to stand in solidarity with the Writers Guild of America on strike. Guild members are facing catastrophic reductions in both available work assignments and compensation, including for residuals. This is largely due to classic exploitative practices, including speed-up and “deskilling” of their work, by various streaming service employers. WCSA members can find out more, including the state of negotiations and where to join picket lines at https://www.wgacontract2023.org/strike/picket-schedules-and-locations.
Dorm Deadline Extended!
If you’re planning to stay in the dorms at UIC during the WCSA23 Conference, you have until May 20th: Purchase them right here, through our website’s “Member Portal.” Questions? Reach the Conference Organizing Committee at email@example.com.
As of May 20th, 2023, the deadline has passed.
