UC Strike Looming, Calif. Labor Relations Board To Request Order To Limit Number of ‘Critical’ Health Strikers
American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299, which represents more than 21,000 technical and service workers at University of California medical facilities, has threatened a 24-hour strike for Wednesday regarding contract negotiation disputes on wages and benefits and staffing levels. The strike would affect 10 UC campuses and five hospitals. Sacramento Superior Court has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday where the state labor relations board will request a restraining order to limit the number of employees in critical health and safety roles who would be permitted to strike.
