Three strikes, and the University of California is out.
Or so it appears, given the fact that the yearlong, contentious contract negotiations between the American Federation State, County and Municipal Employees 3299 and the UC ended mere days before the union was set to host its third strike.
In Dwaine Duckett’s commentary “UC doesn’t deserve labor smear tactic” (Viewpoints, Jan. 28), he alleged that it was unreasonable for AFSCME-represented UC employees to demand the same respect and dignity that is afforded other UC workers who serve the same people in the same facilities.
Oakland: In marathon bargaining sessions this weekend, AFSCME 3299 represented UC Patient Care Technical Workers have reached a tentative contract agreement with the University of California.
This week’s planned ULP Strike at UC hospitals has been cancelled, and a ratification vote has been set for March 26-27.
