University of California patient care and service workers will announce Friday the results of a statewide vote on whether to go on strike.A yes vote would mean that as many as 20,000 workers at UC's five hospitals and 10 campus systems could begin striking in ten days.

Workers are demanding higher wages, saying the UC system has fallen behind other hospitals and state community colleges, which pay an average of 25 percent more for the same work.
