A one day strike was staged Thursday, April 14, at the nine University of California campuses, and five medical centers, by AFSCME
service workers demanding better pay, advancement opportunities and a stop to hiring discrimination. Members of other unions, including the IWW, CUE, UAW, UPTE, and AFT were out in solidarity to support the strikers. Santa Cruz Metro bus drivers honored Thursday's picket lines, refusing to bring students onto campus. Scabs were brought in for some jobs, while other workers also crossed the lines citing financial hardship. Contract talks continue next week in Oakland.
