UCSB Workers Strike

Hundreds of service workers rallied at 6 a.m. Wednesday morning at UCSB’s Henley Gate to strike in unison with workers of the largest union in the UC system. Though contract negotiations between workers in AFSCME 3299 and UC officials are ongoing, union leaders say the strike is about unfair labor practices. Workers across the 10-campus, five-hospital university system say they were retaliated against after participating in a system-wide strike last May. Strikers later marched through campus, and as of press time, had planned to continue demonstrating until 7 p.m.
