Today on Your Call: Are strikes effective in today's labor climate?
On today's Your Call, we'll take a look at how unions are organizing strikes today. UCSF patient care workers just ended their strike yesterday, the concession union workers at The Giants' AT&T park recently voted to authorize a strike, and musicians with the San Francisco Symphony came out of negotiations after their own strike back in March. So what strategies are helping workers? And how effective are strikes in a time when unions are under attack? Join us at 10 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Have you been involved in a successful strike? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and You.
