UAW Local 4811 President Rafael Jaime had said that UC has “used and condoned violence against workers and students peacefully protesting on campus for peace and freedom in Palestine” for the last month.

University of California academic workers must end their strike over the university system’s response to anti-Israel protests on campuses in the university system, according to a California judge order.

The UC system had sued United Auto Workers Local 4811 to end the strike .

“We are extremely grateful for a pause in this strike, so our students can complete their academic studies,” UC associate vice president for Systemwide Labor Relations Melissa Matella said in a statement about the ruling. “The strike would have caused irreversible setbacks to students’ academic achievements and may have stalled critical research projects in the final quarter.”
