Protesters picket at UC Irvine Medical Center
Orange County Register

Union hospital workers picketed outside UC Irvine Medical Center on Friday morning and threatened to strike if negotiations for a new contract falter. The “informational picket,’’ as union officials called it, was part of a statewide campaign by the University Professional and Technical Employees and the California Nurses Association to inform their members and UC officials that the unions have received authorization to conduct a strike at the five UC Medical Centers across the state.
