UC service union votes to strike

From page A4 | February 16, 2014 |

After three days of voting, the union representing the University of California’s 8,300 service workers and 13,000 patient-care workers authorized a strike on Friday, the third in less then a year.

AFSCME, which has been negotiating a contract for UC service workers for more than a year, said dates and duration of the strike will be determined by the union’s bargaining team, which is composed of service and patient-care workers elected by the membership.

While the contract at issue is for the service workers, the patient-care employees at UC’s medical centers authorized a sympathy strike. An AFSCME news release said 96 percent of its membership voted in favor of striking.

“Our members seek a fair settlement, and this vote makes it clear that UC’s final offer fails to meet that standard,” said Jose Mendez, a UC service worker and AFSCME bargaining team member. “The ball is now in UC’s court. We hope they will change course and finally choose to work toward an agreement that addresses our core issues and honors our contributions to the university. If not, our members are prepared to strike.”

AFSCME 3299 is the University of California’s largest union, and represents more than 22,000 service and patient care technical workers at the system’s 10 campuses, five medical centers, numerous clinics and research laboratories.
