Service Employees International Union on strike …


About 1,100 County workers in the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) were on strike through the first week of October, marching and chanting in front of the County Administration Building, 651 Pine St., Martinez. The strike was over health insurance coverage and pay, with the SEIU asking for a 17 percent raise over three years; the County offered 10 percent. The union’s contract with the County expired in June, with negotiations taking place since that time. The union claims there was little impact to County services during the strike, which ended Oct. 7. (MARK FIERNER / Martinez Tribune)
