Union Mob Hammers Cal Chancellor

Yesterday was supposed to be a nice, congenial meeting between UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau and the staff assembly. “We were looking forward to having a lively discussion with him about job classification changes,” organizer Kate Benn told the Oakland Tribune. But then a mob of 350 university medical employes had to go and ruin it by storming the campus meeting and demanding that they be paid more than $14.45 an hour! The nerve of some people. They even had the poor manners to bring up UC police chief Victoria Harrison’s sweetheart pay package. No wonder Birgeneau “looked distressed.”
