If We Don't Get It Shut It Down! AFSCME 3299 Workers Strike UCSF Mission Bay & Are Joined by CWA UPTE and Unite Here Local 2 Marriott Strikers

AFSCME 3299 workers joined by CWA UPTE workers and striking Unite Here Local 2 Marriott strikers at the UC Mission Bay campus on October 24,2018 in San Francisco rallied, danced and spoke out about the threats of the UC Regents and executives to contract out their work to lower paid workers. The UC management are also attacking their wages, healthcare and want to privatize their pensions and give control of some of them to Regents on the UC Board.

The UC Regents and managers are spending billions on new construction to establish a for profit healthcare enterprise and according to workers they are outsourcing large number of jobs to increase the profits of their healthcare plans. The Marriott workers are facing similar attacks on the living conditions and ability to survive in the Bay Area. Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom who is also a Regent at UC and who the unions are supporting for Governor has not joined the picket lines and supported this workers struggle against privatization and outsourcing.
