Why is our AFSCME 3299 bargaining team calling for a strike vote?
Our Bargaining Team has been negotiating in good faith. UC still has yet to offer real wage increases, benefit protections, job security, safe staffing and ending discrimination in the workplace. Instead, UC wants us to take cuts. We have reached the final impasse in SX Bargaining. If UC continues to refuse to meet our core demands, we must be prepared to take all actions necessary to win, including striking. That’s why our bargaining team is calling for a strike vote to show UC that we are ready to fight for what we deserve. Patient Care workers are voting to join the lines with Service workers in solidarity; all UC workers deserve better.
