tv KTVU Mornings on 2 FOX May 12, 2022 7:00am-9:00am PDT
unionize. from ktvu. fox two news. this is mornings onto it is for being with us. i'm gasia mikaelian. good morning. i'm dave clark. welcome to thursday, may 12th good morning gaza to be inside and out of the chill parsons here. he's talking about our weather and what to expect steve, another cold one for us. that is true you to not as bad as tuesday and wednesday, but still cold enough. with thirties and forties. we'll have mostly sunny skies unless you're northward. mendocino county lake county probably partly to mostly cloudy, but a little bit of a breeze, some patchy fog out there, but after today, all signs are pointing towards the warm up, but not today. kind of the same temps. so we had yesterday. patchy fog. cool, chilly, cool and whatever you will look at it. sun clouds breezy highs today. still, even though they're coming up, they're all below average tomorrow will be closer to near or maybe slightly above. right over the sound seven o'clock in the morning. a bridge a freeway
. where do you want to start? yeah let's start in contra costa county, steve. a lot of people always want to know what highway four looks like. want to let you know right now that we do have slow traffic this morning, which is not unusual driving in on highway four. some of the speeds are pretty low this morning, which is typical. also 80 has some slow traffic on 80 down to about 30 miles an hour on interstate 80. this is a look at oakland freeways and you can see that looks good. and at the bay bridge toll plans that we do have a backup, which stands for about 10 to 15 minutes, 701. let's go back to the headlines. inside out. just look at the pictures new video from alejo this morning showing the efforts to rescue a person stuck inside of that burning car. it happened late last night on sonoma boulevard. firefighters the police bystanders all worked hard surrounding by the intense flames to get that person out
that we're still trying to find out if the person was hurt. and if that person was heard, how badly was that person hurt will bring you more information and updates as we get it here all mornings onto happening today to starbucks stores in santa cruz will open today as the first locations in california to be unionized. ktvu semantic in town is in santa cruz. now with what this means for those workers there, amanda yes, well, this is one of two locations here in santa cruz joining that national union called starbucks workers united. we've been seeing this a lot across the country where people are unionizing in these major companies such as amazon. they're forming unions to fight for their rights as employees. npr reports starbucks workers have formed unions at about 50 locations since december. creating one of the most significant union drives in the us, the union organizer here in santa cruz says it was important for this group to fight to make working conditions better. we're
showing that not only can college students and young people organize their workplaces , but we're showing that true workplace democracy requires taking everyone into the battlefields in relation that we're fighting for all workers. our entire life is work. that's what our life is based around. so being able to dictate how it's affecting us and telling the people the problems with with the work because it's changeable, um, that's that's needed. the workers here say security issues, wages and a lack of support from upper management are just a few of the reasons they began to organize a union six months ago. starbucks says it's stronger without unions and announced a new benefits last week. including wage increases. expanded training time improved, sick leave and a new app for employees across the country. but it says those unionizing will not get those new benefits. the ceo, saying a federal law
prohibited while they're in the collective bargaining process, but the national starbucks union claims that the coffee chain is violating labor laws by threatening to withhold those benefits. now organizers here say there are 19 stores across the state who are also thinking about unionizing and across the country. there are about 230 other starbucks. also thinking about unionizing, so we will see more of this in the news. definitely also, there are reports that some of those unionizing workers could be invited to the white house in an effort to show that the biden administration is pro union so we will see if that happens as well. live in santa cruz. amanda came tonight. ktvu fox two news. thank you time 704. with demolition continues today in the south bay to tear down the building that was the site of last year's deadly vita shootings were nine people were killed. cruz for the santa clara
bta started tearing down buildings be at the guadalupe light rail yard in may of last year, a disgruntled employee shot and killed nine people, then killed himself. the bta says tearing down the building will be good for the traumatized to employees will also improve maintenance and operations. now do you new information about the case of a toddler who died in the santa rosa home? authorities have said they discovered fentanyl inside the home the day she died. the sonoma county d a s office is investigating the matter and has released the girl's parents. in the meantime, prosecutors tell the press democrat they need to gather additional evidence before filing charges. prosecutors are waiting for test results on whether drugs were indeed found in the home and whether the 15 month old child died by fentanyl exposure. time is 705. san francisco's police commission will hold public forums before they decide whether to restrict police traffic stops. these low
level stops these pretext stops. are not making us safer. our own data shows that we uncover contraband and incredibly low rates. last night, the commission heard the proposal to ban police officers from pulling over drivers for minor traffic violations, like an expired license plate or tended windows. the advocates say that african american drivers are six times more likely to be stopped then white drivers for these kinds of infractions, police chief bill scott says there's room for reform, but his officers have to be able to do their job. we have to have policies that still allow officers to do the job of protecting the public, and that balance is difficult, so there's a lot of work to be done on this policy. we do have to address disparities. now the police can still site drivers were low level offenses. the tickets will be sent out in the mail or left on a parked car. vinyl vote by
the commission is expected this fall. now the san francisco police officers association issued a statement. it said officers focus on behavior when making traffic stops to enforce the vehicle code, not anything else. the reality is routine traffic stops can lead to removing illegal guns off our streets and given the level of gun violence our city is experiencing. these traffic stops literally save lives. seven now the contra costa county board of supervisors has approved money to expand the size of the sheriff's staff. the county can hire 29 new deputies and five more sergeants in the fiscal year starting in july. the sheriff says having more deputies will reduce the response time for emergency calls. our time now, 707. we're less than a month away from the june 7th primary. and while campaigns of ramping up, some say not enough attention is paid to latino voters. latinos make up about 40% of california's electorate. but there's a new
poll from the latino community foundation that found that 37% of latinos. we're not sure if they would vote in the november election experts say the campaigns have to do a better job of reaching latino voters. knocking on the door of the going inside the sitting around the table, talking to the family coming back again and again, which can be a little more time consuming, but we know that that those methods do work. a candidate or campaign has to show that they really care. that they are not just there for the vote, but there for the long haul. that respondents of that poll said the top three issues for them are the rising cost of living jobs and affordable housing candidates forum and san jose last night focused on the race for santa clara county sheriff as the june primary quickly approaching here. the event was hosted by eight community groups. three candidates took part, palo alto police chief robert johnson, santa clara county sheriff's sergeant sean allen and retired captain kevin jensen. each answered questions submitted by community members and sponsors
of the form and said why they were right for the job. things that always work best. we're involving the community and sitting down and talking about something you're going to implement because they have viewpoints to and i don't think that our current sheriff has done that. but the leadership determines all those things are backed up training, hiring, firing, promoting and what trying to do and how we hold people accountable and this department and like many others, it's failing to do that. to date . i'm an advocate for finding resources, especially with those suffering from mental health illness. in palo alto were the only agency in the county municipality that has a psychiatric emergency response team that's an officer and a clinician partnered together responding to those in need. the race to replace retiring sheriff laurie smith is well underway. last december, a grand jury accused smith of corruption including political favoritism, and improperly issuing concealed carry weapons permit. smith has denied the charges against her. time is 79 here. the nine u. s court justices will be holding a
private meeting later today. washington insiders say it is likely to be a tense one. this is the first time they've officially met since that draft opinion on the roe versus wade decision was leaked to the public about a week and a half ago. ktvu is andre senior here in the studio now in the final decision on this isn't expected for a few more weeks is happening in california right now. as a matter of fact, the supreme court is like their release the decision near the end of this term, which is scheduled for june. 27th california lawmakers were among the first to react to that leak, saying the state would help cover the travel costs for women from other states who need to have abortions. well now governor. newsom wants the golden state to invest millions of dollars to protect abortion right across the state. he's proposing $40 million in grants to abortion providers who help women have abortions for little or no cost. and that includes more than 100 planned parenthood clinics. newsom also wants to create and fund a state operated reproductive care website, the organization called norad pro choice california has been
pushing for this program. people can access comprehensive information about where to access abortion care how to get financial assistance for that, how to get logistical support. i really to ensure that that it's all self contained right that people are not following subject to misinformation, disinformation. the governor's ideas are part of his budget proposal, so the next steps include the state legislature and governor reaching agreements on the state budget choice advocates strongly opposed the governor's plan. but it could be hard to block the funding since a large majority of california support a woman's right of choice back to you, garcia, andre. thank you. as expected, democrats in the u. s senate were unable to push a bill to protect access to abortion on a floor vote. vice president kamala harris presided over the procedural vote. it needed 60 votes to get past a republican filibuster. in the end, 49 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill 51 voted against it. this
vote clearly suggest that the senate is not where the majority of americans are on this issue. it also makes clear that a priority for all who care about this issue. priority should be to elect pro choice leaders at the local state and the federal level. while there is a lot of focus on what appears to be the likely reversal of roe v. wade political analysts say there are other topics that will also push voters to the polls in the midterm election. i don't think it will be a bigger issue than inflation and the economy. however i think this is sort of a big, important side dish to a lot of voters. but i still think the you know the main dish is going to be. how are people feeling in their pocketbook? course the issue of abortion rights was thrust into the political forefront following a leaked draft opinion showing the high court could be poised to overturn roe v. wade in the coming weeks. alright our time is 7 12. let's check in with
south. it gets you where you need to go. what's happening in traffic now? well right now, dave garcia, we do see traffic, becoming a little busier as the seven o'clock hour usually is our busiest. and you can see i'm going to put up the short time is taken about a little more than a half hour to drive from the cartoonist spreads to the mcarthur maze and a lot of that is slow. however that's not as bad as we've seen it, so i'm kind of looking at the glass half full. here you will see a little bit of slowing at the bay bridge toll plaza and the east bay does have slowing on highway four and 6 80, which is all very typical marine county traffic has been very lightly traveled a little slowly, now beginning to develop. on south dont wanna one in nevada but not for too long 8 80 in oakland looks good. we had an earlier problem in hayward. that's also been looking good highway. 24 is moderate on the way over to the tunnel coming up soon, we'll take a look at the south bay commute. which is beginning to develop that usually gets going later and it is starting to form at 7 13. let's go back to the desk. thank
wait, who, me? me? no, not you. yvonne yiu. yvonne yiu. not me. good choice. for 25 years, yiu worked as an executive at top financial firms. managed hundreds of audits. as mayor, she saved taxpayers over $55 million. finding waste. saving money. because... yiu is for you. yiu is for you. exactly. yvonne yiu. democrat for controller. meet apartment 2a, 2b and 2c.
2a's monitoring his money with a simple text. like what you see abe? yes! 2b's covered with zero overdraft fees when he overdraws his account by fifty bucks or less. and 2c, well, she's not going to let a lost card get her stressed. am i right? that's right. that's because these neighbors all have chase. alerts that help check. tools that help protect. one bank that puts you in control. chase. make more of what's yours. theg big hillside homes and powerful
winds are making it hard to put the flames out. and here we are. in early may reporter mario ramirez for the latest on the coastal, fiery live in laguna niguel. we've seen a lot of devastation in the overnight hours, and now that it's daylight, we can see clearly, mario. garcia david. good morning. yes, we count at least 15 homes on this street alone in this laguna laguna niguel neighborhood, a gated community and as you mentioned multimillion dollar homes. some of them that have burned to the ground like this one here, and this is what we've been seeing up and down this street, so i'll have fox 11 photographer olen martinez worked his way up with me and show you another home three in a row here. that have similar damage, and unfortunately, some of the residents who have been evacuated mandatory evacuations late last night. they're returning this morning coming home to find this type of devastation. we have some images , and we want to show you what this looks like the scope of the fire. this was reported around
three o'clock yesterday afternoon near a water treatment plant between laguna niguel and laguna beach. the fire really blew up from just a few acres to over 100 and a matter of an hour and with strong winds carrying the flames through nearby brush, and then those embers from home to home. but this is what we're left with. hundreds of residents in this community evacuated first voluntarily, then mandatory evacuations with law enforcement going through these neighborhoods with loudspeakers and letting people know they have to leave immediately, and usually, what we see in these cases is some residents waiting for the last minute, waiting at their homes to see what they can do to prevent this type of damage, so we know right now. the cause is still under investigation. but so cal edison , one of the leading utility companies here in this area, is reporting some sort of circuit activity in the area where the fire started so much more to come on that those are just preliminary reports coming back out here live. this is another home on the opposite side of the street, and you really have to consider yourself lucky. if your home was untouched because i would say almost half here on
this block look like this multiple fire agencies here, stationed throughout the good news is as you guys mentioned. the strong winds have died down. so that should really help with the firefight as they're working on putting hot spots out in this neighborhood and really getting ahold of this 200 acre fighter right now. garcia gave mario as californians. unfortunately we're used to seeing these images. however we usually see them in, you know. september october. have you talked with fire officials? or maybe residents about just this phenomenon of this happening in early may? yeah, you know, fire officials have said that there is no longer technically a fire season because we see this year round. we should mention that it's been a fairly quiet year when it comes to wildfires. the last serious fires were towards the end of 2020, but yeah, this really feels like it came out of nowhere. we had these strong wind gusts moved through the area. lot of forecasts weren't really predicting them to be this strong. and unfortunately,
you know, this is the type of damage we're seeing. but hopefully, residents got out and they're in these areas. they know that they have to be prepared for something like this. kind of affective life. alright mario ramirez live in laguna niguel. thank you this morning. time is now 7 20 salads back, sal. everybody behaving in our commute now. yes so far. we do have very routine looking commuters. you drive through the area. we're going to start in the east bay and work our way. south 80 and highway 24 also 6 80 are getting a little bit more crowded, although it does not appear to be a terrible commute this morning and you get to the bay bridge. you will see backup of about 10 minutes before you make it onto the span. and on the same mateo bridge. things are looking. okay we talked about that south bend commute. looks like we may have lost two. there it is. there's 2 80 in san jose, and i want to put up the map of the south. they were seeing a little slowing through that silicon valley on 85, which is typical between one and one

really? the corporations take 90 percent of the profits. and using loopholes they wrote, they'd take even more. the corporations' own promotional costs, like free bets, taken from the homeless funds. and they'd get a refund on their $100 million license fee, taken from homeless funds, too. these guys didn't write a plan for the homeless. they wrote it for themselves.
lost an embarrassing game last night against the memphis grizzlies. reaction from the warriors after the grizzlies beat them by 40 points in the western conference semi fun from ktvu fox two news. this morning's onto morning to you and thank you for joining us. welcome the mornings onto i'm dave clark gasia mikaelian. it's thursday. may 12th let's get outside. maybe tomorrow is an even better day to get outside steve paulson because things will mellow out quite a bit by then. that is true. tomorrow will start a warmer pattern today won't be bad, but i mean it's still a little on the cool side, but in the afternoon, it's okay. but that breeze your picks up by tomorrow, though, will be all systems go for some warmer temps, a weak little system brushing us. we'll do it today to keep us from warming up all that much so some patchy low clouds in the morning here. another cool called morning, but sun and clouds breezy highs still below average here, which translate mainly in the sixties could be a few near 70. right over to sound now who's gotten
busy? 7 31 where you want to start, my friend. we need to start in burlingame. there is a new crash steve on the way up to the airport north. dont wanna one at the broadway burlingame exit looks like this crash. is going to be slowing traffic from as far back as san mateo. so if you're trying, driving up the peninsula and if you're especially if you're going to the airport don't be late by this unexpected problems, and if you're driving up the peninsula, you might want to use the world's most beautiful freeway. the junipero serra freeway north bong to 80 as an alternate route. let's talk about the south bay commute. we have some slowing on 85 87 2 80 as you drive into that area, which is not unusual, speeding, just pick up and also here at the bay bridge toll plaza. we see the traffic is going to be backed up for at least a 10 minute delay before you make it past the metering lights 7 32, let's get back to the headlines. thank you happening now wildfire, fueled by powerful winds continues to burn in orange county, close to two dozen mansions have gone up in flames already, and that
could be just the beginning. ktvu alley, rasmus live in studio here. firefighters really working to assess the damage at this moment. that's right. and then in the next hour, garcia we expect to get an update from cal fire about the damage that was done overnight from this fire. cal fire is calling this orange county wildfire. the coastal fire it is burning near laguna beach cliffside community of laguna niguel. now this is what the fire looked like overnight. now you're looking at the scene from this morning an aerial view of some of the damage at homes still smoldering in the area and firefighters still putting out hotspots. this fire has burned out about 200 acres. it's destroyed at least 20 homes. but firefighters warned that number will go up as they get a clearer sense of the size and scope of this fire. this fire started shortly before three o'clock yesterday afternoon and quickly spread as one photojournalist from our sister station in l. a observed we have this structure here are completely burned out right next door to it. have another vehicle that's just completely burned out. i believe these were some of the well, i
think over here we have a structure that's coming down right behind me. and you could just see. look at that. look at this from here. you could you could feel the heat. damage assessment teams going through the area right now. the neighborhoods still under evacuation orders from this fire , and this morning, there was at least one resident who returned to see the damage and was stunned by what he saw. a lot of people have lost their homes. it's just hard to look at it. it's probably all i can say. firefighters this morning still dousing hot spots at several homes that had already burned the homes in this community. we should mention our palatial. in fact, one of the homes that burned is about 10,000 square feet. it was listed for sale right before this fire. to the price of about $10 million. we don't know why or how the fire started just yet, but again, it was windy. however orange county firefighters say even more important than the winds was the vegetation and the landscape in
the area was extremely dry. they say. that was one of the biggest factors in how quickly this fire spread. southern california edison did report what it called circuit activity in the area close to where the fire started near water treatment plant yesterday. but no confirmation yet as to whether the that utilities power lines maybe what started this. garcia and dave back to you okay, ali. thank you time 7 35 new data from the state says the north bay is doing a better job of saving water than the rest of the state. a study comparing the periods between 2019 and 2020 with 2021 now shows healdsburg was the best in the state that saving water residents there. cut water use by 40. the city's in sonoma and marin counties were near the top of the list. but on the other hand the city of el segundo in southern california was the worst at saving water and water use went up by more than 40. statewide water used was up in the month of march of this year compared

statement from the president who called for flags to be flown at half staff at the white house and all federal government buildings today through monday in memory of the one million american lives lost. the coronavirus was declared a global pandemic on march 11th 2020 at that time, 36 americans had died around the world. 6.7 million people are recorded as dying of covid. the world health organization says the actual death toll is twice that number . 7 37 sonoma county despite a rise in virus cases, has not reported any covid deaths. and almost a month now. there have not been any deaths from the coronavirus in sonoma county since april, 16th, sonoma county's health officer, told the chronicle. the state models forecasts of the current increase in virus cases will subside in sonoma county by late may or early june. new this morning. san francisco public schools are making juneteenth a district holiday. the board approved the proposal yesterday

now. we know that they're they're desperate team their backs against the wall, and, uh , we have to meet their their energy in that regard. it doesn't feel good losing by as much as we did, but in the days just a loss and you flush it from your mental and you remind yourselves who you are, maybe go in and play with 100% effort on friday and i like our chances. okay you can't count them out. still don't know if head coach steve kerr can come out of covid protocol for tomorrow night's game or if the assistant coach mike brown will continue to be the acting head coach, and there's a concern about otto porter jr he has an injured right foot. 7 39. let's see if we can help you get to work in school. all those fun things we get to do on a thursday cell. where do you need to start for traffic? yeah gosha and dave, let's start in the east bay. this time i want to show you that we have a very normal looking commute. in some
quadrants, and sometimes they're a little bit slower than others on the east bay. the bay bridge looks pretty normal and we don't have a lot going on when it comes to unusual, slow traffic and on the same mateo bridge. it looks okay as you head out there to the peninsula. and on the peninsula. mostly it's going to be good and there's a little slowing. in mountain view. however there is a problem north. dont wanna one at broadway, burlingame and usually , that's not that slow this morning at this time of the morning, it's a little slow, but this morning it is slower as you drive up towards san francisco international. the best bet for you would be to get up the hill on 2 80 used to 80 heading north instead of one. oh, one. if you're going south, this might affect you a little bit. not that much. if you're approaching the airport, let's say from san francisco. i think just an extra five minutes would do. but if you're approaching, let's say from belmont redwood city. and you're trying to catch a flight. don't be late. 7 40. let's bring in a man who's never late. he's punctuality embodied. absolutely that is true. um i learned that
from my father if you tell me to be there at 7, 13 and 30 seconds, i'll be there. seriously yes, sir. with you, right? the same kind of dad. exactly exactly. thank you, sir . although both of us got to the airport about five hours earlier than we should have. all right. thank you. sal seven south lake tahoe 25 truck, he dropped to 12 the other morning by the way. travis air force base yesterday morning. 31 degrees. now the national weather service in sacramento does not recognize that because it's an faa site. he had a friend of mine said. i'll look it up. that was a record low and also the coldest so late in the season. how about that? 31 san francisco tied a record low of 46 degrees by the way. and half moon bay set a record low yesterday of 36 that's calling for me. speaking of cold point raised by diego bay and san francisco, bowie temps are still 49 cold degrees , but warmer weather is on the way when tomorrow. starts tomorrow. we'll pick it out on
saturday. still okay sunday, but i think the fall comes back. it will be a little cooler. one little system today, moving into the north. so if you're mendocino county north, you might even counter some partly to mostly cloudy skies, but south of that it will be mostly sunny. high clouds that breeze isn't going away yet. still have the onshore breeze. forties fifties had a lot of thirties this morning, but now we're recovering pretty rapidly here. couple holding on especially up towards mendocino county, lake county, middletown, made it down to 33 but most locations now in the forties or even fifties. another system moving through. they don't have a lot of moisture, but well, they sure win producers. that's that's been the key here since about the middle of april into early may. cool morning sunny, mostly sunny unless you're north and partly cloudy tomorrow, though we started warmer pattern will get some eighties inland won't take long. and that's even warmer on saturday fifties sixties and you're 70 on the temps warmer takes us into saturday. still okay with a little cooler sunday than more so on monday, you guys okay. see time is 7 42, the biggest cost of living increase in more than 40 years. social security

announced this fall. it will go up against apple with its long awaited pixel watch. it will integrate fitbits technology because google owns that now. no word on a price for the watch. probably will be just about what an apple watch costs. i'm pam cook. that's a look at your dollars and cents. thank you now to an incredible story you have to see and hear. in florida. a man who had never flown a plane before was able to make a safe emergency landing after the pilot of a cessna had a medical emergency situation. pilot john idea how far the airplane roger what's your position? i have no idea. roger trying to hold the wings level and 50 can start sending for me forward on the controls and descended a very slow rate. could we all be as cool and i don't know. men find out. let's certainly hope that
the man at the controls of the system managed to land the single engine plane safely at the palm beach international airport. yesterday, we heard that air traffic controller talking him in the plane was flying in from the bahamas when the pilot had some sort of medical emergency. we don't yet know how that pilot is doing. the faa is investigating, but my goodness talk about you know, expert behavioral on both ends of that air traffic controllers don't know. yes i know this, but i used to fly in a plane looking at traffic. sure yes, i did know that. so, um there was a pilot and i was looking down. i learned that specific reason to land the cessna 1 70 to take off . i learned because i always thought what what happens if this guy goes down? i'm up here . i need to do it. so i learned just for that reason, right? yes and i mean, you have to be you. obviously you could die. so i mean, you have to. you have to be really common. those
situations. it's just kind of brings back it kind of makes the hair on the back of my neck. stand up when i hear that audio, alright? good morning, everyone speaking of the peninsula because i used to fly out of san carlos there north. dont wanna one getting up the same mateo and up to the san francisco airport with the big boys fly. there is an accident. it's not very serious injury wise, but it is affecting the traffic on northbound one. oh, one as you drive. it looks like it might be better if i put my microphone on jeff green. what do you what do you think, huh? and play television here. dortmund one on one as you drive up, you might be better off if you're going up the peninsula if you drive on to 18 northbound instead, there've been no problems on the peninsula. other than that southbound 80 a little hey, slow from hayward to union city. now, hayward's another airport. i used to fly out of there you go . he would. traffic is moderate . 7 53. let's bring steve in. steve you and i are both fans of the big planes. i do. i used to
love to watch. you can't really do it anymore. but i used to love that. that's true. sam will get to it here. we have a quiet pattern for us today. kind of on a cool pattern tomorrow will start to warm up. a couple of systems are still impacting us. one moved out the other ones moving into the north. so mendocino county north, maybe a little bit of rain clouds coming in there, but mostly sunny. partly sunny for us chili lows again. thirties forties patchy fog dancing around san high clouds, little breeze at times will continue. fifties sixties seventies this going to move i think it's done there it goes thirties forties fifties. i think most locations now in the forties with a few fifties, so really not a lot of change today until that system goes by to the north, so another cool cold pattern for us will get replaced with one of which will be warmer. that won't be until tomorrow, though, now take us into saturday, but it's not going to stick around. so enjoy . if you want warmer weather enjoy friday saturday because by sunday is starting to look cooler 50 sixties to a few near 70. tomorrow though all systems go for warmer weather will take that into saturday. dave thank

needs and the mascot that can build community. they're pointing out. many other universities already have mustang mascots. he said davis students would relate more to the cows that live on their campus, some of them right next to the dorms. the line of fire still burning in southern california. right now, dozens of homes near the coast engulfed in flames, the latest on the damage and the investigation in laguna niguel and making history in california. reaction from workers that to senator cruz starbucks, the first to unionize in our state. from ktvu fox two news. this is mornings onto and welcome to mornings onto i'm andre senior. good morning. i'm gasia mikaelian. it's thursday, may 12th let's get you outside in the sunshine and we are looking forward to a bit of a warm up as the day goes, steve a little bit today. more so tomorrow youtube for sure. tomorrow will be the warmest that we've had in a long time.
but right now it's still a little cool for some here this morning, but not much changed from yesterday, but it might be a little bit warmer some clouds and moving into the north up towards mendocino county. you might get maybe a little bit of activity, but a few high clouds and patchy fog, especially in the 8 80. corridor down to san jose and parts of the san mateo coast. but except for that, or chilly, cool morning, no doubt about it again, we'll get some mix of sun and clouds. there's still going to be a breeze in onshore breeze. so temps are trying to bump up, but there's still held in check. all right over to sound now. 801 something new old. you want to what do you want to start with? well i don't know if that fits into either category, but our buddy old giants pitcher bill ask is watching us now. so i he just texted me saying he do. he's enjoying our show. so that's good. major league pitcher there one. oh, one. we're going to start their about one. oh one burlingame driving up to the airport. don't be surprised. one oh, one as you drive up to broadway, burlingame, the clearing an accident. i would say el camino real is also kind
of a bad alternate. we have a lot of slow traffic there. if you can get up to the top of the hill there, go on to 80. that would be your best bet to get up to peninsula on the other side of the bay. we do have some slowing between hayward and union city. and of course we want to look at the bay bridge toll plaza. this toll plaza picture shows that traffic is backed up. for about a 10 minute delay before you make it onto the span. it's 802. let's get back to the headlines. thank you happening today to starbucks stores and santa cruz are opening as the first locations in california to be unionized. our mannequin title live in santa cruz with what this means for those workers there, amanda yes, well, this is one of those two locations here in santa cruz that the employees will be joining that a national union. that union is called starbucks workers united now we have seen this across the country happening with these major companies unionizing at certain locations. we're seeing it happen with amazon. some of their employees are forming unions to fight for their rights
as employees. npr reports starbucks workers have formed unions at about 50 locations since december. creating one of the most significant union drives in the us, the union organizer here in santa group says it was important for this group to fight to make working conditions better and customers we spoke to here understand why we're showing that not only can college students and young people organize their workplaces, but we're showing that true workplace democracy requires taking everyone into the battlefields in really showing that we're fighting for all workers. i used to go to a lot to the starbucks on ocean street. and i know that the one over there had a lot of problems with, um, homeless people coming in and berating people and the baristas were not treated very well. when the i mean, just, you know, and ultimately they had to stop having seats for everybody because it got kind of noisy and, um just you know, it was a complicated issue. the workers
here say those security issues, wages and a lack of support from upper management or just a few of the reasons they began to organize a union six months ago , starbucks says it's stronger without unions and announced new benefits last week, including wage increases, expanded training time, improve sick leave and a new app for employees across the country. but it says that those employees who are unionizing, they will not get access to those new benefits. the ceo said that there is a federal law that says during the collective bargaining process, they are prohibited from giving those new benefits. to those employees who unionized , but that national union they're saying that is against the law that they are also eligible to get those benefits. they said that they are vital, violating labor laws by threatening to withhold those benefits. now here in the state of california, the organizer to your say that there are 19 other
starbucks in california that are planning to unionize. they're also about 230 other starbucks locations across the country also planning to unionize, so we will start to see more of this news more and more often. also there are reports that those employees that do unionize that starbucks they could be invited to the white house to meet with the president as an effort to show that the biden administration is pro union so we should see if that happens as well. live in santa cruz, amanda quintana ktvu fox. tunis starbucks unionizing here in california. amanda thank you will developing story the southern part of our state of fast moving wildfire in orange county, demolishing large hillside homes. and strong winds are making it hard to push those flames out. the coastal fire and set in laguna niguel has burned at least 20 homes and structures. strong winds are fending these flames, forcing people to evacuate as firefighters. russian at one point, the entire area was under a mandatory evacuation order. that's very emotional. we're ready to go home as soon as the
embers start to get underneath those tiles and then even in the attic vents. it's not an instant structure, fire or building fire. it takes sometimes up two hours before the entire house will start to catch on fire. high winds and dry conditions combined with those steep hillsides. are making it harder for firefighters to battle these flames caused by the way still under investigation. well cal fire crews here in northern california say the coastal fire is a sign of what could be to come this fire season. i think the thing that really concerns us today is just the fact that you know we're not even into the peak of fire season yet, and we saw a wind driven fire go from a very small acreage to a very large acreage in a very short amount of time. and, unfortunately, um, destroying structures in its path. well cal fire deputy chief jonathan cox says there is concern about the intensity of this fire so early in the season. our fear is, you know we are not even in the first inning of fire season in
california, and we're already starting to see fires go from very small events to destructive incidents. so here's what's happening right now. the deputy chief says cal fire will hit peak staffing in the bay area and statewide before the end of the month. now to new information on the case of a toddler who died in a santa rosa home. authorities have said they discovered fentanyl inside the house the day she died. the sonoma county d a s office is investigating the matter and has released the girl's parents. in the meantime. prosecutors tell the press democrat they need to gather additional evidence before filing charges. prosecutors are waiting for test results on whether drugs were indeed found in the home and whether the 15 month old girl died by fentanyl exposure. well san francisco's police commission withhold public forms before deciding whether to restrict police traffic stops. these low level stops these pretext stops. are not making us safer. our own data shows that we uncover contraband and incredibly low rates. last night
, the commission heard a proposal to prohibit officers from pulling over drivers for minor traffic violations, such as expired license plates and tinted windows. we can see black drivers are six times more likely to be stopped than white drivers for these infractions. police chief bill scott says there is room for reform, but officers must be able to do their job. we have to have policies that still allow officers to do the job of protecting the public, and that balance is difficult, so there's a lot of work to be done on this policy. we do have to address disparities. police can still site drivers for low level offenses. tickets would be in the mail or sent to the offender in the mail or left on a parked car. final commission vote is expected this fall. now the same francisco police officers association issued this statement that reads officers focus on behavior when making traffic stops to enforce the vehicle code. not anything else . the reality is routine traffic stops can lead to removing illegal guns off of our streets.
and given the level of gun violence our city is experiencing these traffic stops literally save lives. the contra costa county board of supervisors has approved money to expand the size of the sheriff's staff. the county can hire 29 new deputies and five more sergeants in the fiscal year starting in july, the sheriff says having more deputies will reduce the response time for emergency calls. we are less than a month away from the june 7th primary and wild campaigns are ramping up. some see there aren't paying enough attention to the latino voters. latinos make up about 40% of the state's electorate. but a new poll from the latino community foundation found 37% of latinos weren't sure if they vote in the november election. experts see campaigns have to do more to reach these latino voters. knocking on the door of the going inside the sitting around the table talking to the family coming back again and again, which can be a little more time consuming, but we know that that those methods do work . a candidate or campaign has to show that they really care. that they are not just there for the
vote, but there for the long haul. respondents to the poll said the top three issues are rising cost of living jobs and affordable housing. let's get you out the door. we don't like surprises, sal. we've established that throughout the warning when it comes to traffic . what should we know about first? let's look at the east bay commute gosha right now. geisha and andre westbound 80. i can show you what i'm looking at here on my screen. it is pretty slow. richmond berkeley 6 80 is slow from concord to walnut creek and highway four still has a bunch of slow traffic. 5 80 is getting slow now from san leander, pretty solid line of traffic over to the lakeshore area in 8 80 is slow from hayward to oakland. that's all very typical. gasia mikaelian surprises and we don't like those dont wanna one on the peninsula at broadway burlingame . they're clearing a crash there and how we wanna one northbound coming out of san mateo is very slow if you want to drive up to peninsula and you don't need to be on one. oh, one. get up to 2
80. that's much better. i don't like al camino real right now. it's pretty crowded. i think a lot of people are staying off the freeway. and if you do have a flight at sfl leave early if you're driving in, let's say from redwood city, belmont or san mateo, you're going to need that extra time to stay on schedule. it's 8 10. let's go back to the desk, so thank you. well, this one. it was certainly hard to watch the warriors blowout loss to the memphis grizzlies. still feeling fresh. it is very fresh, in fact, and coming up the reaction from the warriors after losing by 40 points as memphis slows down the warriors playoff run also new efforts to expand abortion access. next details on governor newsom's multimillion dollar proposal to fund reproductive care.
fanduel and draftkings, two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california.
cream court justices will hold a private meeting today. washington insiders say it is likely to be a tense one. it will be their first meeting since the draft opinion of the roe v. wade decision was leaked to the public nine days ago. governor newsom wants to spend tens of millions of dollars to protect abortion rights and expand access to abortions across the state. ktvu magus has details on his new proposal and what it could mean for abortion providers. i think governor gavin newsom gave californians a preview wednesday of his
forthcoming budget proposal seeking major increases to investments for access to abortion care proposal includes $40 million in grants for abortion providers to compensate them for providing low or no cost abortions. that's critical funding for the more than 100 planned parenthood's across california. seeing that investment was really great because it was a recognition of the work that our health centers do every day. um and that investments going to allow that type of character continue for years also sets aside money for a state run reproductive care website. it's a resource that naral pro choice california and abortion rights advocacy organizations that's headquartered in san francisco has been pushing for and that is a one stop shop website so that people can access comprehensive information about where to access abortion care how to get financial assistance for that, how to get logistical support. i really to ensure that that it's
all self contained right that people are not falling subject to misinformation. disinformation east bay assembly member rebecca bauer kahan is on the legislative women's caucus, which has championed for this additional funding. what you're seeing is a real commitment from the governor to put significant funds behind the ability to access reproductive healthcare and abortion and you'll see the same from the legislature. next step is for newsome and the legislature to negotiate and then passed the budget by mid june, well timed for the united states supreme court's decision on roe v. wade to come out. emma goss, ktvu fox two news as expected, democrats in the u. s. senate were unable to push a bill to protect access to abortion to a floor vote. vice president kamala harris presided over the procedural vote needed 60 votes to get past a republican filibuster. in the end, 49 lawmakers voted in favor of the bill 51 voted against it. this vote clearly suggest that the senate is not where the majority of americans are on
this issue. it also makes clear that a priority for all who care about this issue priority should be to elect pro choice leaders at the local state and the federal level. while there is a lot of focus on what appears to be a likely reversal of roe v. wade political analysts say, there are other topics that will also push voters to the polls in the midterm election. i don't think it will be a bigger issue than inflation and the economy. however i think this is sort of a big, important side dish to a lot of voters. but i still think the you know the main dish is going to be. how are people feeling in their pocketbook? the issue of abortion rights was thrust into the political forefront following a leaked draft opinion showing the high court could be poised to overturn roe v. wade in the coming weeks. well new this morning. the effort to recall any admiral lamar thorpe is dead recall supporters did not collect the required number of signatures to put the recall on the ballot by yesterday's deadline. we'll recall
supporters accused the company they hired to collect signatures of fraud, claiming it didn't turn in. the signatures in a statement of video statement released on social media, maryland, thorpe said he is excited to move forward from this recall effort. time now is 8 18. let's get you out the door, starting with traffic. what's going on sal castaneda andre the peninsula, we have to go there again, northbound one. oh, one. coming up on broadway. burlingame there's a crash that traffic is going to be very affected by this crash at their clearing, and the traffic is also slow south bong in this area so i would avoid one on one between the same mateo and san bruno here between 92 3 80 used to 80 if you can, if you're going to the airport, and you have to be on one on one give yourself extra time. let's talk about the east bay. there's highway 24 moderate six eighties also slow between concord and wallet, creek and highway forward still slow. all of this is very typical. the bay bridge is backed up for about 10 minute
delay. it's not all that bad. this is very typical of what you might see. nowadays, 18. let's bring steve back in with today's weather, sal. thank you, sir. another day of a kind of cool temps, although each day we will not be as cold as tuesday and wednesday, but we had some thirties this morning, but the high temps are mainly in the sixties. and our good friend. mr. john borelli says good morning, mr p. well, good morning, mr b. no complaints for me. i love these cool temps. well i think you have a lot of company. some people want some warmer temps. they'll start to get here. but not until tomorrow. and for sure, on saturday, another system is clipping us sending in partly cloudy mostly cloudy skies north little bit of fog south, so mix of sun and clouds today. 27 truckee lake tahoe at 34. now they were down to 25 forties and fifties for others, so we're beginning to make the move off those lows. the water temp. so say no, no, i'm not warming up here. there's still really cold. 49 san francisco bowie point reyes and bodega bay. so after a cold week will end the week on a warmer pattern starts tomorrow, and then it tops out on saturday , but it's not going to hang around. looks like it starts to
move east by sunday. we'll see some cool attempts. kicking in. if you're well to the north, lot of cloud cover, maybe some light rain. if you're in the immediate area, you probably just get some higher clouds and a little bit of a breeze as well. that's still an onshore breeze, so that will keep us held in check on the high temps. forties fifties on the temps, maybe a smidge warmer but up north, not the case. you can see mendocino county. a lot of that cloud cover filtering in. so after that system goes through, though high pressure will follow in and that will give us a warm up. it'll start this friday and then top out on saturday. but for today mostly sunny, partly sunny for some here and then warmer temps on friday. the warmest him will be on saturday for sure. 50 sixties to near 70 for a few, but all systems go for warmer tips. friday, saturday still okay sunday, but a little cooler. steve thank you. it's 8 20 here. a popular trail in the sequoia national forest is about to reopen after being impacted by last year's wildfires. the trail of 100 giants is set to reopen tomorrow. it is surrounded by 1500 year old giant sequoia trees. many which
