After their offers to bring in former SF Mayor Willie Brown as an independent negotiator were rebuffed by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, all non-emergency Oakland city workers will go on strike Tuesday for the first time in four years, citing inadequate pay, short-staffing, overtime, and other concerns. Schaaf claims the strike is unlawful, though most labor experts disagree.
