PLEASE POST NOTICE TO UC STAFF AFSCME NOTICE OF SERVICE STRIKE ON JULY 14 - 18, 2008 The University has been informed by AFSCME that its members in the Service bargaining unit will be conducting a five-day strike on July 14 - 18, 2008. We have information that Patient Care Technical employees and employees in other bargaining units may choose not to report to their assigned duties on those days. It is the University’s position that any AFSCME strike at this point would be unlawful. In fact, the Public Employment Relations Board, the state agency responsible for overseeing collective bargaining for public institutions like UC, has issued a complaint against AFSCME for bad faith bargaining in both the patient care technical and service unit negotiations and is seeking a court-ordered injunction to prevent the strike. UC has advised AFSCME of its position in this matter. We regret that AFSCME has called for a strike at this time and are taking steps to protect the safety of our patients. If any employee (including non-represented and all bargaining unit employees) scheduled to work on July 14 - 18 does not report to work on those days, we will presume the absence is strike related unless the absence was pre-approved by the supervisor or medical certification is provided documenting that the employee was sick on that day. If employees call in sick on the days of the strike (July 14 - 18), we will require that they provide medical documentation of the illness upon their return. Employees who are absent from work without authorization during a strike will not be paid for the absence. If a strike is illegal or unprotected under applicable law, an employee may face the possibility of disciplinary action for cause. Additional information related to the status of bargaining and strike activity is available at: www.ucpatientcaretechs.com; http://atyourservice.ucop.edu/employees/policies_employee_labor_relations/collective_b argaining_units/service_sx/bargaining_update.html If you have any questions, please talk to your supervisor.
