..."Claire Doan, spokesperson for the University of California, sees the matter differently. She says that the service workers already have good health care benefits, paying on average about $20 a month, and their demands for a 6 percent annual raise can't be justified to taxpayers. The university first offered a 3 percent raise and when the union didn't agree, the university gave the workers 2 percent.

"All they've done is hurt care for our patients and our students," Doan said."...
"And one that has not convinced UC administrators, Doan said.

"It's done nothing, this strike, to change our position on their unreasonable demands for their excessive raises and benefits," she added."
