‘Essential’ UC patient care workers can’t strike, court rules
Sacramento Business Journal

Sacramento County Superior Court Judge David Brown has ordered 49 “essential” patient care workers to work through a strike Wednesday at five University of California medical centers, including seven respiratory therapists at the pediatric intensive care unit at UC Davis. The tally reflects a list of workers the union voluntarily agreed to exempt from the strike. It’s also reflects a recommendation by the Public Employment Relations Board. UC has asked the union to call off the walk-out.
