On Thursday, the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees 3299 held its fifth strike in a year.
The union, which represents over 24,000 employees across the UC system, went on strike after alleging the UC has been responsible for “years of scandal,” namely income inequality and “illegal intimidation tactics.”
