More than 2000 San Joaquin County workers planned a strike. Workers strike because they want change. Often, they want more money or changes in their work place.
The strike did not happen because the union and the county reached an agreement in time. Both sides say there are details to settle before the contract is final. Because there was no strike, people can get services at the hospital, the courthouse, and other county offices.
