The Chart of a Deal...


A look at it from grad student and post doc views: push for stronger sexual harassment policies at the University of California
http://www.sciencemag.org/careers/2016/03/push-stronger-sexual-harassment-policies-university-california


Includes:
"Recent, highly publicized cases involving sexual harassment by highly placed professors have roiled campuses in the University of California system. On 2 and 3 March, the unions that represent more than 6000 postdocs and 13,000 student workers on the system’s 10 campuses joined in demonstrations and events to push for strong reforms in how the university handles sexual harassment and assault allegations. Events including marches, forums, speeches, rallies, and tables were scheduled at the Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz campuses.

These events follow on a letter providing detailed recommendations on protecting junior researchers that the union for postdocs—the United Automobile, Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America, UAW Local 5810—sent in January to the office of the president of the University of California and the chair of the University of California Academic Senate."
