More than 53,000 union workers in the University of California were on strike from May 7-9 in the biggest labor action in UC’s history. Led by AFSCME 3299, the California Nurses Association and University and Technical Employees (UPTE-CWA) joined the line in sympathy strikes against the state’s largest employer. UC wants to implement a third tier in the pension plan and eliminate the freeze on health care co-pays. Wage offers don’t keep up with the high cost of living and are insulting to workers. The unions need to keep the pressure on and stay out until their demands are won.
