Four classifications selected for study and review


Local 1000’s Unit 20 Classification Study Committee has selected four classifications for review by the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR). The committee made the selection by utilizing a classification survey and results of salary studies conducted by Local 1000 researchers.

Our contract article 14.21.20, Classification Studies affords Bargaining Unit 20 the opportunity to propose four classifications, each year, for review. 

The following classifications series are those selected by the committee and includes any Local 1000-represented classifications in the series:

  • Clinical Laboratory Technologist
  • Dental Laboratory Technician
  • Assistive Technology Specialist
  • Dental Hygienist

Local 1000 is currently meeting with CalHR to negotiate over the California Department of Education’s (CDE) proposal to change classification specifications for the Counselor and Night Attendant series. 

All updates will be posted on the Bargaining Unit 20 webpage as soon as they become available. 

In the meantime, here are three things you can do to help promote your classification through this process or in anticipation of inclusion in next year’s review:

  • Increase membership in your classification
  • Increase COPE contribution
  • Wear purple on Wednesday to show solidarity
