SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Business has been disrupted at three courthouses in San Francisco after more than 200 courtroom clerks and other workers walked off the job for a one-day strike.
Members of Service Employees International Union Local 1021 staged the labor action Monday to pressure San Francisco Superior Court managers to provide internal information about the court’s finances.
SEIU spokesman Steve Stallone says union negotiators want the information to show that worker concessions court administrators are seeking are unnecessary.
Court spokeswoman Ann Donlan says the courthouse has not been shut down, but she did not immediately provide details about whether the strike had forced trials to be postponed or closed any offices.
The targeted courthouses are where state criminal, civil, probate and juvenile proceedings are held.
