Local 1000 kicked off bargaining with the State of California, the fifth largest economy in the world. As we enter our discussions with the State, we will share our commitment to build a California for All.
In our California for All, we believe everyone should have access to quality, affordable healthcare – whether they live in Redding or downtown Los Angeles. We believe California’s own employees deserve to make $15/hour. We believe every single person should be able to retire with dignity. We believe, if we are truly committed to building a California for All, it starts right here with California’s own state employees.
That’s what this contract is about. That’s what we are fighting for.
This is our chance to set a new standard for what working people can accomplish when we stand together and fight for a California for All!
