Thousands of AFSCME 3299 UCSF and UC workers went on strike on May 7, 2018 at Parnassus campus. The workers are demanding an end to contracting out, attacks on pensions and starvation wages. Many workers have to commute into the UCSF campus costing a serious part of the income. Many of the UC Regents are millionaires and billionaires and executives at UCSF have been getting $100,000 bonuses according to the workers.
There is a major plan to also outsource the work at UC to lower paid workers without workers protections.
Last year 65 tech workers at UC were outsourced by the management and replace by workers from India at much lower wages increasing the profits of UCSF.

UC billionaire regent Richard Blum who is married to US Senator Diane Feinstein has been pushing privatization of the UC pension system including getting rid of defined pension benefits and instead forcing them into 401c's controlled by these same trustees.
They also are giving high paid executives bonuses for outsourcing the work of the university.
