Share your story and tell the State we need a fair and equitable contract

Article Published on October 21, 2022

As we continue working toward negotiating a new contract with the State, telling the stories of members like yourself remains a crucial part. And we need your help.

Stand up and tell the State your story

When it comes to Contract negotiations, nothing impacts the State more than hearing from full-time employees who are still struggling to get by.

In past bargaining sessions, Local 1000’s negotiating team has used video recordings, personal letters, and photos to show the State that we are not just numbers on a spreadsheet, but vital employees who make California work … yet, California isn’t working for us in the way of fair wages, good benefits, and safe working conditions.

So, if you’re suffering and searching for ways you can help get a better Contract for yourself and your union siblings, send your name, phone number, email address and where you live to and we’ll set up an interview.
