SEIU Local 1000

Local 1000 of the Service Employees International 
Union is a united front of 96,000 working people employed by the State of California, making Local 1000 the largest public sector union in California and one of 
the largest in the country. We fight to ensure that state workers…and all workers…are treated fairly and respectfully in the workplace, and are protected from unsafe work conditions.

Local 1000


Our officers meets monthly to discuss and decide our union program, oversee our budget, and determine the best way for us to come together and win for ourselves, our patients and clients, and our communities. Additionally, they run the union day-to-day based on the program plan and direction of the Executive Board.

“Having the union and a steward at our worksite helps us 
get problems solved quicker and get answers to problems 
as they develop. Communication is key to identifying these problems and more importantly, finding the solution.”

When does our contract become law?

Senate Bill 148 (State employment: State Bargaining Units: agreements: compensation and benefits) was signed by Governor Newsom and chaptered by the Secretary of State on Sept. 13th.

What happens next?

CalHR will issue a Pay Letter to the State Controller’s Office (SCO) notifying the SCO about the changes to the California State Civil Service Pay Scales.

When will we see changes to my paycheck?

This is dependent on the State Controller’s Office. Possibly November or December.

Do we get back pay?

Yes. The General Salary Increase (GSI) and Special Salary Adjustments (SSA) are retroactive to July 1, 2023. You should receive this pay in November or December 2023 but this is dependent on the State Controller’s Office.

When does the Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) reduction take effect?

The 0.5% reduction — lowering the OPEB contribution from 3.5% to 3% — takes effect the first pay period following ratification. The reduction should be seen on our November paycheck.

When does the $165 health care premium contribution take effect?

The State’s additional $165 contribution to employee’s health care costs will take effect in December 2023. Click here to determine what your healthcare cost will be in 2024 with this additional contribution.



The more of us who get involved, the more we can win for ourselves, our families and the communities we serve. There’s strength in numbers, so we ALL need to be members and get active in our union.
