About 100 Picket Near UC San Diego’s Hospitals

The workers, who are administrative assistants, collection representatives, child-care assistants and public safety dispatchers, say their wages have not kept up with inflation.

The San Diego Union-Tribune: Teamsters Strike At UC San Diego Hospitals 
Administrative and clerical workers picketed near UC San Diego’s hospitals in Hillcrest and La Jolla on Tuesday as part of a one-day strike that unfolded at University of California facilities statewide. About 1,500 of the 12,000 workers at UC campuses across the state work in San Diego County, most of them at UC San Diego’s main medical centers. On Tuesday morning, a university spokeswoman said there were about 100 picketers spread across the two campuses. The activities have not forced surgeries or other medical work to be rescheduled, she said. (Sisson, 1/10)
