Strike Announcement Locations

It’s clear that UC would rather give 1st class treatment to executives and nurses than give patient care and service workers the respect we deserve.

On October 12, our Bargaining Team gave notice to UC that Patient Care workers will be on strike  for three days to protest UC’s 2nd class proposal, and that Service workers will strike in solidarity. We are ready to fight for what we deserve, and we will keep fighting until we win!

“I came to work to UCI because it offered me and my family benefits and job security. I struck all three days in May. I knew that three days would be financially hard but I made a choice to sacrifice three days instead of five years. I am a single mother of two boys, one of which is on the Autism spectrum. Protecting and defending my contract is all for my children. I am ready to strike again and I will do whatever it takes to make sure I can provide a better future my sons. United we stand for solidarity.”

— Teresa Ramos, Biller III, UCI MC

“I am striking because I want UC to answer for the inequality that continues to plague the UC system. I’ve worked for UC for 16 years. I take pride in the work I do, but I’m ashamed at how UC is treating us. We all deserve better. Since UC won’t treat us with respect we deserve, we’ll have to fight for it.” 

— Denise Dixon, HA III, UCSD


Virtually all Patient care workers can strike, however the labor board has determined a very limited number of workers who must report to work. If your name is on the list, you need to report to work on the day(s)/shift(s) indicated. Click here to see if you’re on the list and required by PERB to work the days of the strike.
