UC Service Workers Strike: November 13

AFSCME 3299 announced a one-day job action on November 13, 2019 for both its service and patient care units. The union has been in negotiations with the UC for more than two years, and recently filed complaints about university outsourcing of service work. The California Public Employee Relations Board (PERB) issued its own complaint to the UC about outsourcing and the failure of UC to share relevant information with the union. In summary, the university is sub-contracting work normally done by union workers and refusing to release the terms of those contracts.

You can join AFSCME members and allies for marches throughout the day, and there is usually a rally at noon around Bruin Plaza and/or the Hospital.
