San Diego Union-Tribune

University of California hospitals from San Diego to Sacramento will experience significant service delays due to a two-day worker strike set for today and Wednesday, UC system officials said Monday.

Service will not return to normal until next week, they said in a press conference.

The last contract with AFSCME Local 3299, the union calling the strike, expired in September and negotiations for a new contract have stalled. The union, which represents about 13,000 employees, set the strike date on May 10.
