Column Extra poll: How likely is a state-worker strike?

jortiz@sacbee.comJuly 10, 2014 

The State Worker column this week focuses on the promise and peril of impasse for the bogged-down contract talks between Gov. Jerry Brown and 850 state operating engineers in Bargaining Unit 13. It offers a path to mediation, but it also opens the door to management imposing terms and for the rank and file to strike.

Worth noting: While state university employee unions have staged strikes, no union that bargains with the governor has ever walked off the job en masse.

What’s next? Will the union strike? Take our poll.
