LOS ANGELES (AP) - A union local representing University of California clerical and administrative support workers staged a one-day strike against the 10-campus system and medical centers.

Teamsters Local 2010 said nearly 12,000 workers would walk out Tuesday amid negotiations over a new contract, but UC says most of the employees showed up.

The union claims violations of state law by the university and unfair labor practices including failure to bargain in good faith, among other allegations.

A UC statement asserts that the strike is counterproductive to negotiations in which it is offering market-competitive wage increases and good benefits.

The labor action coincides with a strike by more than 600 plumbers, electricians and other trades workers at the University of California, Los Angeles. That five-day strike began Friday.
