Local 2010 Members Strike Univ. of California
UC San Diego skilled trades workers, represented by Local 2010, have struck over UC’s labor law violations.
The contract for the 14,000 UC administrative support workers statewide, also represented by Teamsters Local 2010, is due to expire Nov. 30. These workers’ real income has declined by 24 percent over the past two decades, and they are now paid so little that 70 percent suffer from food insecurity or hunger according to a recent study. The union is preparing to take statewide strike action, if necessary, after expiration of the contract.
The Teamsters stand behind the members of Local 2010, approving a resolution in June backing their campaign as well as coming together to march against UC’s actions in Hollywood in September.
