The lecturer strike alleging unfair labor practices and calling for the UC Office of the President, or UCOP, to meet lecturers’ demands has been called off.

UCOP and UC-AFT, a union representing university lecturers, reached a tentative agreement Tuesday night, according to UC-AFT President Mia McIver. As a result, about 4,000 lecturers across the UC will be holding celebratory rallies at noon, instead of walking the picket line, according to a UC-AFT tweet.

The strike was originally planned by UC-AFT and follows more than a year of rallies with various demands.
