Nobody should have to deal with these conditions:’ Union workers continue 2nd day of 3-day strike

The UC system’s largest employee union, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, or AFSCME, Local 3299, went forward with the second day of  its three-day strike for better contract terms....
AFCSME Local 3299 was joined by UPTE-CWA 9119 — the UC’s union of technical and professional employees — and University Council-American Federation of Teachers, or UC-AFT, the union for UC librarians.
According to David Eifler, a campus environmental design librarian, UC librarians are without a contract with the UC for the first time in 35 years, lifting a previous clause that barred employee strikes.
“We’re taking a sympathy strike with AFSCME because we realize how bad their conditions are, and at the same time, we’re trying to raise awareness of what librarian conditions are,” Eifler said.
