stolen truck. "mornings on 2" begins right now. welcome to "mornings on 2." i'm dave clark. >> i'm claudine wong. tori campbell is off tonight. it's monday, august 2nd. in the news, a protest is happening in oakland at this ho ho -- at this hour. this one started two hours ago and already we've seen tense moments. ktvu's kraig deb bow debro is out there now with the latest. >> reporter: another tense moment a few seconds. behind me, workers are walking the picket lines. they are actually from two facilities. the workers are members of the united healthcare workers west and they work here at piedmont gardens and at grandlake.
a van had trouble entering the property. this is shortly after 5:00 a.m. this morning. the picketers are walking in front of the driveway. security had to clear the pathway so the workers could enter. the workers include cooks, and other workers. the picket is about benefits. >> we have a great plan but they want to change it, like if we go to the doctor and we have to stay in the hospital, it's $3,000. do you know how many paychecks i would have to say for $3,000? that's insane. >> we've made a number of offers. they've all been rejected. they are primarily economic issues. one of them is the pension plan, which is in critical status, which is legal terminology. we think another 401(k) is a better option for our employees. >> reporter: union workers have been accusing both facilities
of firing workers for taking more than five days' sick leave a year. the facility says they get 12 sick days a year but admit half of them are for kindercare. both facilities have hired replacement workers, people the union call scabs. one of the thing they are doing in addition to picketing, walking on the driveway, which we touched on before as a problem. police were out here a while ago. i asked her who called them. she said one of the neighbors. it was one of the neighbors who wanted to know what was going on out here because it was 5:00 a.m. back to you. >> thank you. a judge could decide whether to issue an injunction in another labor dispute. this one involving ac transit drivers. you can bet passengers will be
watching this next step very closely. ktvu's jade hernandez has been following the situation and joins us live from oakland. i imagine that riders just want to know what to expect when they are waiting for the buses. >> reporter: claudine, i can tell you they expect delays even today. a newly-appointed judge said a decision could come as early as today. we spoke to one bus driver this morning, and that driver told us they are just worried about their future under a newly- imposed contract made by ac transit. but it's just the opposite with ac transit. the agency says without forcing a contract which saves nearly $16 million for the ex, they will be forced to lay off workers and reduce weekend service. of course, that affects bus drivers and riders. this contract dispute's been going on for months now. today an alameda county superior court judge could rule on whether to lift that newly- imposed contract on ac transit on the more than 1100 drivers. the two sides will still are to
sit down with an arbitrate at the end of the month to work out the contract. the contract ended the 30th. ac transit says if the judge decides to lift the ruling, they will lose. 20% of drivers have been calling in every day sick since this became effective. the union denies a sickout. the union says if the judge decides in favor of ac, they will appeal. reporting live in oakland, jade hernandez, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right, jade. thank you.

enough cost savings. >> when you consider how much we would need to be able to have avoided the layoffs, we need almost $10 million. so there's a $6 million gap between what they're offering and what the proposal actually saves. >> with less firefighters, the citizens, you know, can suffer, but also there's not enough firefighters to back up up in these big incidents that could be injuries, deaths. >> with the layoffs of the firefighters, the city of san jose is closing two fire stations. in addition to the firefighters 142 other city employees lost this their jobs. muni drivers are getting a 6% raise. the average muni worker is now going to earn more than $29 an hour. the increase is going to cost the city around $8 million and to make up for the difference,
