A City of Union City parcel tax, Measure K ballot question was on the June 3, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of Union City in Alameda County, California, where it was defeated.

If Measure K had been approved, it would have "extended and enhanced" for twenty years an existing parcel tax that the city levied on its property owners. Voters in Union City first approved a parcel tax in 2004; at the time of the vote on Measure K in 2008, that original parcel tax was generating about $2.3 million a year in revenue for the city.

After the defeat of Measure K, Union City's city council referred Measure UU to the November 4, 2008 ballot. Measure UU, which was approved, extended the pre-existing Union City parcel tax for eight years, instead of the twenty year extension requested in Measure K.
