Local 1000 came prepared this morning to negotiate. However, the state disrupted and delayed the process by missing a 10 a.m. appointment at a DMV call center in Sacramento.
Once bargaining resumed, our team was able to have a discussion on several proposals.
"It's clear from the state's attitude toward bargaining that we need to bring as much pressure as possible on June 5 at our rally at the Capitol," said Margarita Maldonado, vice president for bargaining.
We resume Master Table bargaining tomorrow.
Activities at the table
- As a result of our Monday discussions with CalPERS and CalHR, the state presented today a proposal designed to help state workers who live outside California obtain affordable health care. The proposal would bring together all the departments with employees who work outside California.
- We discussed our proposal to ensure that employees receive a timely answer when requesting hardship transfers.
- The state presented a counter proposal on personnel evaluation materials, which we will continue to negotiate.
- Our team sought clarification from state negotiators on their proposal with regard to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
