University of California hospital, campus workers authorize strike
San Francisco Chronicle, May 27, 2008
Thousands of University of California hospital and campus workers have authorized a strike as early as June unless UC pays them as much as others doing the same work elsewhere. The union represents nearly 20,000 hourly wage workers across UC's five hospitals and 10 campuses. The union and UC have been negotiating for 10 months, and the union wants minimum wage increased to $15 an hour, in addition to a 25% wage increase.
