The City of Oakland’s civilian labor unions which represent approximately 2,700 employees--SEIU, Local 1021 and IFPTE, Local 21-- announced their intention to strike starting Tuesday, December 5 for an indefinite length of time.
Due to a significant staff shortage, the strike will force the City to close nearly every City facility and program during the strike. Starting December 5 at 7 am and until the strike concludes, all City buildings and facilities will be closed to the public, and most City programs and services will be cancelled or postponed.
Welcome Lake Merritt in Oakland, California, is one of the most unique urban spaces in the United States. Its 3.4 mile heart-shaped shoreline in the center of an exceptionally diverse city is the place for man and nature to migrate, meet and mingle daily. This tidal lagoon is also home to the oldest designated wildlife refuge (1870) in the United States.
lakemerritt.org is an independent, ad-free site with current information about Lake Merritt and links to the volunteer groups and advocacy agencies working for the common good of the lake and the lake area community. It also serves as the portal for the LM Advocates, a coalition of LM organizations.
Underlined words are links.
