Union for patient-care workers at UC hospitals to take strike vote
Los Angeles Times

The union representing nearly 13,000 University of California patient-care workers plans to take a strike vote beginning Tuesday.

The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME 3299, will hold the strike vote through Thursday and announce results next week. The vote comes after nearly a year of negotiations between the workers and UC over staffing, pay and pension reforms. The contract expired in September.
