Cal ASUC on Student Athlete Unionization: We Got Your Back - Today, 08:57 AM

The priorities of student-athletes dominated the floor Wednesday night when the ASUC Senate voted to ensure the rightful acknowledgement of student-athletes by both the student body and the NCAA.

Passed unanimously, SB 70 and SB 69 will create an ASUC athletics affairs officer position to better represent the student-athlete population and officially affirm the senate’s support for the right of student-athletes to unionize, respectively.

“These bills complement one another really well,” said Student Action Senator and Cal cheerleader Lauren Week, who authored SB 70. “Having a representative who is very knowledgeable about student-athletes can help student-athletes get together and communicate with one another.”

Week noted the importance of giving the student athlete population more recognition and attention from the senate. In the new role, the affairs officer will create an ASUC student-athlete calendar, inform the community of updates and spearhead programs to breakdown the barrier between students and athletes, among other duties.
