Dan Aiello of California Progress Report is reporting that SEIU Local 1000 may be gearing up for a strike vote:
Rumors circulated today around the halls of the state Capitol building that state employees, who now face yet another proposed salary reduction by governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, have had enough and are planning to authorize a vote to strike.
Doug Crooks, Director of Communications with the Service Employees International Union's local 1000, which represents more than 95,000 state employees, declined to confirm the rumor but said any decision would be made by the employees through an authorization vote.
"In the first place, that decision hasn't been made yet," said Crooks about the plan to strike. "That decision hasn't been made yet. We are definitely going to strongly oppose and do everything we can to prevent the governor from imposing a fourth furlough day. But check back with me Monday."
