Strike plans to proceed Wednesday at UCSD hospitals
San Diego Union-Tribune

An injunction granted Tuesday in Sacramento Superior Court will not prevent a one-day strike Wednesday at five University of California hospitals, including UC San Diego facilities in Hillcrest and La Jolla. On Tuesday morning the university asked the court to bar some essential health care workers from walking the picket line. That request was granted, but only for 49 workers statewide, leaving more than 21,000 technical and service workers represented by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees to take up picket signs starting this morning.
