IBT2010 UCSF Teamster Workers Strike For Living Wages And Against Unfair Bargaining
Hundreds of IBT 2010 UCSF clerical and administration employees went out on an unfair labor strike on January 10, 2017. Workers talked about their fight for a living wage and the attack on their pensions.
Twelve thousand UC Teamster Local 2010 clerical and administrative workers went out on an unfair labor strike on January 10, 2017 against the UC management and regents. They have been without a contract for four years and the UC bosses and regents are seeking to not only attack their living conditions but also their pensions which they want to change to a 401K instead of a defined benefit.
Hundreds of workers at UCSF joined the picket lines and talked about the difficulty of living in the bay area and the necessity to even having to have 3 and 4 jobs to survive. The union has also said that many workers are even having a difficult time meeting buying food for themselves and their families. A large percentage of these workers are women and minorities and some are also single parents trying to survive on less than living wages.
While UC managers and bosses are receiving hundred of thousands of dollars and major bonus along with billions in new hospitals and facilities at Mission Bay the workers that do the work said they cannot survive.
