Oakland unions stiff-arm Schaaf 

If the tenor and tactics of the city workers picketing outside Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s annual State of the City address are any indication, she could be in for another rough year.

Schaaf picked the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California as the site of her speech Thursday night to send a message of community inclusion and harmony.

Unfortunately for the mayor, the gathering was anything but. Hundreds of unionized city workers blocked Madison Street in front of the center in the hours before Schaaf was to speak, forcing anyone who wanted to go inside to walk a picket-line gantlet.
