SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — More than 1,000 unionized construction workers walked off the job Thursday at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Mission Bay. The workers are upset after six non-union construction workers were brought on the job on Wednesday.
The bulldozers and other tools at the 16th and 3rd Street location have gone quiet while union representatives and L&S Refrigeration work to find a resolution.
Steamfitter Greg Hodges said between 1,000 and 1,300 workers walked off the job. “It started out three guys, suddenly they have six guys,” Hodges said. “What’s it going to be tomorrow, 12 guys?”
