To the Editor:
The Daily Planet is doing a great job covering the clerical workers' strike at UC. The front page articles for the past two days have really sent the message that the workers are trying to get across.
Congratulations to Daniel Freed for giving the readers a personal view of the clerical workers' motivation for the strike. As the daughter of an administrative assistant working at UC for 15 years or more, I know firsthand the struggles they have to face in trying to get paid and treated fairly. The clericals do many many important jobs at UC Berkeley. In effect, they run the university. Without their hard work and dedication, the school could not operate. I hope the new students and the chancellor and faculty realize that and start giving them the respect and financial compensation they rightly deserve.
