United Auto Workers 2865 represents 19,000 student workers across 9 University of California campuses. Join us on November 4 as we host a panel of healthcare experts and workers affected by the healthcare system, to discuss pressing questions about healthcare reform proposals and how they affect workers.
How would Medicare for All affect workers' contract negotiations? How does the private insurance industry currently affect wage stagnation for workers? Which proposed healthcare reforms are best for workers? And...what does all of this mean heading in to the 2020 elections?
