About Local 3299

AFSCME Local 3299 is the University of California’s largest employee union, representing more than 24,000 employees at UC’s 10 campuses, five medical centers, numerous clinics, research laboratories and UC Hastings College of the Law.

Local 3299 represented workers are organized into four different Bargaining units: UC Service Workers (SX); UC Patient Care Technical Workers (EX); UC Santa Cruz Skilled Craft Workers (K7); and non-academic service, clerical and professional staff at the UC Hastings College of the Law. Local 3299 is governed by an elected Executive Board composed entirely of fellow UC workers representing every campus, and dedicated to building a union that is democratic and responsive to every member.

The story of Local 3299 began in 1948—and remains rooted in a proud tradition of effective representation, solidarity with working families across California, and relentless advocacy in support of social justice and economic opportunity for both our membership and the public they serve.
