Members of the union that represents 22,000 service workers and patient care employees at UC campuses and hospitals have voted overwhelmingly to authorize a possible strike in the future if a contract agreement is not reached, officials said Friday.

Ninety-six percent of the members of AFSCME 3299 voted to allow union leaders to call a strike if they decide it is necessary.
