University of California Workers Begin To Vote on Whether To Authorize Strike Over Unfair Labor Practices Complaint
On Monday, patient care and service workers at 10 University of California campuses began voting on whether to approve a strike based on an allegation that UC engaged in unfair labor practices. Last month, the state Public Employment Relations Board -- on behalf of thousands of UC hospital workers -- filed a complaint alleging that UC administrators threatened workers in May when they participated in a two-day strike at medical facilities in six California cities to protest staffing and pension issues. The voting will continue through Wednesday and the results likely will not be announced until next week.
