East Palo Alto workers go on strike

Nearly 30 employees walk off jobs this morning

About 27 East Palo Alto city workers went on strike this morning after negotiations broke down last night.

Workers and the city say they are separated on three points. The union wants a salary increase, binding arbitration and a requirement that all employees in each classification would be required to be union members.

The union has scheduled a news conference for noon today.

The City Hall Annex building, which includes the Planning Department, is closed today due to the strike. City Hall remains open.
