Day One of AFSCME's Five Day Strike at UCSC
by ~Bradley (bradley [at] riseup.net)
Tuesday Jul 15th, 2008 1:05 AM
July 14th kicked off AFSCME's five day strike at the University of California's ten campuses and five medical centers. At UC Santa Cruz, AFSCME workers, students, workers from supporting unions, and other community members are picketing at the intersection of Bay and High at the base of campus. County buses are respecting the picket line by dropping people off at the base of campus. Some classes were held at the base of the campus and other spaces in Santa Cruz. Scabs have been hired by the UC, but AFSCME workers say as the week continues, people will start to notice declines in the quality of service and cleanliness in buildings, bathrooms, dinning halls and throughout campus.
