we did speak to some picketers who say they will be out here at 5:45. we are waiting for them here to show up. this is a one-day strike and it is followed by a rally later on this morning. this is over contract negotiations. workers demand executives return to the bargaining table. today is thdeadline for mental health worrs to accept a contract offered by kaiser. kaiser gave them an ultimatum to accept the offer or lose a 3% retroactive to last october. 92% voted to reject kaiser's offer in june. workers say the offer doesn't go far enough to address the long wait for therapy appointments. the workers have a counteroffer that would hire more full-time positions to reduce the wait times, establish crisis services at every clinic and give clinicians more time for patient care. kaiser mental health clinicians have worked without a contract since october of last year and say they are fighting to give their patients better access to services. in addition to the protest here
5:06 am
in oakland this morning, conditions at the clinic will hold a one-day strike today. the picket starts at 6:00 this morning, and the rally starts at 10:30 this morning. we did reach out to kaiser to get any information from them and get their side, but we haven't heard back from them yet. ifer now in oakland, ktvu, fox 2 news. >> thank you, sarah. next month, almost 80,000 kaiser workers nationwide are expected to go on strike. on october 4th, the walk-out is scheduled to last seven days and will include california, oregon, and washington. union leaders say kaiser is committing unfair labor practices. picket lines are expected outside kaiser hospitals and medical offices. happening tood in concord, renters in that east bay city are launching the first union in contra costa county. the goal reportedly is to have renters working together to stand up against unfair landlords. they'll be getting support from the union. they say concord city council has refused to even consider

rent control or protection against some evictions. the group has support from several religious leaders, the california nurse's association, and aren'ters from around the country. also today, the san jose city council is moving towards phasing out the use of natural gas and some new buildings. supporters say moving through all electric buildings speeds up development. and it is more affordable for homeowners. if it is approved, this plan beginning in january would affect single family and low rise residential buildings. bergly passed a similar ordnance earlier this year. if the jan jose city council approves it, san jose would be california's biggest city to make all electric buildings a priority. there are now reports that iran may have been the staging ground for the weekend attacks on a large saudi arabian oil field. the wall street journal is reporting that an intelligence report indicated that iran raided the oil fields with at least a dozen missiles and 20 drones.
5:08 am
now, an unnamed source told the paper that the u.s. did not provide enough evidence to saudi arabia to provide without a doubt that iran was involved. president trump believers iran is responsible but added u.s. military retaliation is not an option right now. >> there is nobody that has the f 35. they have the best fighter jets, the best rockets, the best missiles and the best equipment. but with all of that being said, we certainly would like to avoid it. >> the saudi government called the attack an unprecedented act of aggression and sabotage, but stopped short of directly pinning blame on iran. iran has denied involvement. we are keeping an eye on wall street once again. it looks like another drop on the opening. all three indexes dropped yesterday in response to that attack on the saudi arabian oil facility. the heavy losses were for companies that were very dependent on fuel including the
5:09 am
airlines, the cruiselines, and some of the energy companies did move higher. for today, it looks like the dow and the s and p 500 will drop. drivers are fighting for higher prices at the pump. it could be as much as 30 cents a gallon. more price increases are possible depending on how quickly the saudis can restore production. the refineries can only carry one week's worth of reserves. president trump hah had said that the u.s. could pull some crude oil out of the strategic petroleum reserve. analysts say they creates another set of problems. >> they can't release any very quickly. there is administrative process, and there is just physical constraints. for the next few weeks or so, it is not really going to have any effect. >> now, investors also worry about the future. the security of saudi arabian operations as well as other political hotspots. more than one-third of oil comes from the middle east.
5:10 am
speaking of the middle east, the polls are open in isreal today for electing a prime minister for the second time this year. this do-overelection was called because prime minister's party did not win a majority and could not form a government. the polls indicate this vote may end in another stalemate and there may possibly be a third election. well, back here at home happening today in san francisco, the man charged with attacking a woman outside of her condo complex in san francisco last month is due back in court. vincent austin is facing charges of attempted robbery, false imprisonment and battery. he was arrested after this surveillance video of the attack of the woman was released. he also identified austin as her attacker. it is 5:10. neighbors call it a ticking time bomb. coming up, frustration over part of the gas pipeline that is exposed to the elements.

5:31 am
degrees. but i think we'll stay this way all the way until about friday or saturday. except for a few clouds around. it will be mostly sunny today. the system has clicked out. some pretty good rain. thunderstorm activity in the mountains and an even deeper system is moving in. this will favor north and east and give the sierra another shot of some snow tomorrow morning and a little bit of rain for us tomorrow. 40s and 50s for your temperatures. look how much cooler we are compared to yesterday at this time. anywhere from five to 17 degrees fairfield than we were 24 hours ago. overall, a nice tuesday. the every chus in the 750s. we'll deal with our next system coming in tomorrow. the pattern is very active. 60s and 70s on the high. >> highway 4 has a crash, steve. we're going to go to it right now. this is westbound highway 4 coming up from antioch to pittsburg if you are trying to get out of the pittsburg area heading out toward concord. you are going to see a crash that they have been clearing on westbound highway 4 coming up on just east of leverage road.
5:32 am
this crash has been there, and we also had an earlier accident on the bailey road onramp, so there are two icons there, and that means this commute is off to kind of a much slower start than usual heading off from antioch to concord. now, if you are on 680 and you don't use highway 4. if you just drive from the bridge to walnut creek, that is still a decent commute for you driving through the area. i do want to mention that traffic is already getting slower as well on 80 westbound. 37 is already getting slow as you drive out toward the 37 west. let's talk about the east shore freeway between the bridge and the mcarthur maze. a 19-minute drive. and the bay bridge lights going on just a little bit early. it is 5:30. we also full here. again, this is nothing out of the ordinary. and today, a much better day today than yesterday. there is no rain on this morning's commute commute.
