Union covering UC workers calls one-day strike
Sacramento Business Journal

The University of California’s largest union has called one-day unfair labor practice strike of UC campuses and medical centers on Nov. 20. Service and technical workers at the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees will be joined on the picket lines by members of the California Nurses Association. Both unions are in collective bargaining with UC. The strike stems from what AFSCME calls “a coordinated campaign of illegal intimidation, coercion and threats” against AFSCME members who participated in a two-day walkout in May.
