SEIU 415 Workers Strike and Rally at the Santa Cruz County Building

On March 14, 2006, 1,800 Santa Cruz County workers launched a one-day strike against the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors which they say, “so far refuses to provide wages comparable to that of comparable workers in comparable counties.”

By the time I got the rally, workers had already marched into the lobby of the Santa Cruz County Building. I was told that they were inside for about 15 minutes and then voluntarily came outside where they sang, danced, played drums and spoke out against a Board of Supervisors which they say fails to pay a fair wage in comparison to other workers in comparable counties.
