East Bay Parks Workers Gear Up to Strike on the 4th of July

Cliff Rocha & Cheryl Brown

The East Bay Regional Parks wouldn’t be an award-winning park system in California without dedicated rangers, naturalists, lifeguards, firefighters, trades workers, supervisors, clerical and other professional workers. AFSCME Local 2428 members watch over swimming areas, provide programming that introduces the public to nature and animals, and make sure that trails and picnic areas are maintained to provide an overall positive park experience. Parents with small children, the elderly and disabled users from every community in the East Bay are able to access the parks because of the work they do.
