Democratic leaders decided to change venues due to an ongoing labor dispute involving UCLA.


The Democratic National Committee on Wednesday announced that the University of California, Los Angeles, would no longer host the December presidential primary debate, citing a campus controversy related to an ongoing labor fight.

“In response to concerns raised by the local organized labor community in Los Angeles, we have asked our media partners to seek an alternative site for the December debate,” DNC senior adviser Mary Beth Cahill said in an emailed statement. “We will be in touch with more information when it is available.”

The news of the venue change from the party organization comes amid a boycott of speaking engagements at the University of California demanded by AFSCME Local 3299, the school’s largest employee union, which has been locked in a dispute with the the 10-campus system for nearly three years.
