Some 3,900 San Joaquin County employees have worked four months without a contract.

While union leaders don't want to strike, they'd like to see what they perceive as greater cooperation from county negotiators, said Patrick Ikeda, president of the local chapter of Service Employees International Union.

    "The county can't deviate from the script," Ikeda said. "They can't say 'yes;' they can't say 'no.' It makes for a very tedious conversation."

    Of course... The SEIU are angels sent from heaven. They are the good ones.... They are famous for polite constructive dialogue where mainly reasonable ideas and thoughts are gently submitted in a thoughtful way.
    The other side is obviously selfish, diabolical, angry, stubborn and insulting. These obstructionists that were trained by Genghis Khan who are unsympathetic to the generous, reasonable and kind SEUI representatives need a wake up call.
    Clearly the county representatives are mean spirited and have no intention of offering a fair proposal. Its time to strike... The SEIU is obviously been pushed to the brink and treated with disrespect. Its time to insist on fair treatment. I sincerely hope a strike is called and the union members refuse to return to work... permanently...that would be only fair considering how unfair the SEIU has been treated.
