Tens of thousands of health care workers are scheduled to go on strike Monday across the University of California system, including UCSF Medical Center, which rescheduled surgeries and delayed cancer treatments for several hundred patients.
While UC’s six medical centers will be affected the most, every part of the 10-campus system will feel the impact, with workers at student health centers and in some other parts of the campuses also walking out.
The planned three-day walkout is an effort by the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 3299 to persuade the university system to increase salaries and address racial and gender pay inequalities.
“It is a major disruption,” said Sheila Antrum, senior vice president and chief operating officer for UCSF Health, on Parnassus Avenue. “We have patients who have been counting on getting their procedures done, people who are counting on infusions who are being delayed.”

The appointment of Dr. Oz is notable because he’s long used the Dr. Oz Show as a platform to market alternative medicine, i.e. mostly fake or overhyped products and recommendations. In one case, a company producing a supposed miracle weight loss drug that he endorsed was fined millions by the FTC, and Dr. Oz was separately summoned before a congressional hearing to testify as to why he kept promoting products with no legitimate science behind them. Studies have repeatedly shown that Dr. Oz does not seem to use actual evidence when making health recommendations on his show.
In 2015, a group of respected doctors wrote a letter to Columbia University medical school asking the institute to fire him over his “disdain for science and for evidence-based medicine, as well as baseless and relentless opposition to the genetic engineering of food crops,” as well as his “egregious lack of integrity... promoting quack treatments and cures in the interest of personal financial gain.”
In other words, the guy is not someone you might want serving on a presidential council. So why was he picked by the White House?
