California Secure Choice
And Local 1000 is taking a lead role in creating new and innovative private-sector models for workers who don’t have pensions. In 2012, Local 1000 was a strong supporter of the legislation that created the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Plan which, if implemented, would provide a voluntary, automatic-enrollment, retirement plan for millions of Californians without one. Local 1000 President Yvonne R. Walker serves on the Secure Choice Board, and the union is committed to moving this important program forward.
As hard as Local 1000 has fought to retain our members’ public-pension retirement benefits, we are working toward a future where our members’ families, friends and neighbors also have that security. We want a healthy, vibrant California economy where seniors can retire in dignity and with the independence to control their own destinies.
All Californians deserve it. That’s why we are dedicated to creating a California where there is Retirement Security for All.
