San Diego Union-Tribune

Health care workers at UC San Diego Medical Center, and other University of California hospitals across the state, moved one step closer to the picket line Tuesday, announcing they have authorized a strike but announcing no firm date when they would stop reporting for work.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299 said that 97 percent of its 13,000 members voted to strike out of frustration in stalled contract negotiations.
