Strike News - Addendum

Yesterday, the day of a one-day strike by AFSCME in the UC system, we posted some information about the work stoppage.

As it turns out, a few days before the strike the Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) issued a ruling on a university request to obtain injunctive relief against such one-day stoppages. PERB rejected UC's request because "the record in this case gave... insufficient cause to believe that the Unions were engaged in unlawful intermittent strike activities. Without such evidence, the University’s underlying unfair practice theory is fairly characterized as 'insubstantial or frivolous.'”

You can find the PERB decision of November 7th at: (Quote from p. 2.)
