MUNI TroubleAlert Tuesday Wednesday: A Demonstration in the Inner Sunset..

Just saw an announcement on the Muni TroubleAlert advising that there may be "delays" on the 6 and 43 due to a demonstration scheduled from 3:30-5pm. UPDATE: This is actually happening tomorrow, July 30th, not today! This is what happens when you scan the TroubleAlert at work, and don't just sit around goofing off with the computer all day (like some elected officials do).

Apparently it's related to the ongoing labor/management difficulties at the University of California, which have been going on for some time. I don't know all the details - union members or assorted UC workers, feel free to leave a comment and let us know what's up!

Hey there,
Just wanted to let you know that the UC worker's strike is a general strike for higher wages for UC staff (not professors). As the UC regent pulls in six digit figures, 96% of UC staff qualifies for public benefits, i.e., below the poverty line. A generic article detailing the motivation behind the strike can be found here:

Best of luck to the union.
