Unit 14 Alert: Bargaining Update – May 18


Unit 14 signed a tentative agreement with the state today that fulfills a key bargaining priority by mandating that overtime be assigned by seniority within a classification.

The new language is designed to prevent management from playing favorites when it comes to overtime assignments by assigning overtime to lower paid employees in lower classifications.

“This is a big win for us because it has been a problem for a long time,” said Robert Vega, vice chair of Bargaining Unit 14. “Fairness in overtime assignments was identified by Unit 14 members as a bargaining priority.”

We are also encouraging all of our members to RSVP for the June 5 “I’m All In!” rally at the Capitol – an action that will tell everyone that we are all in for Local 1000, all in for a fair contract and all in for quality public services for Californians.

Master Table bargaining resumes next week. [Blast only] More bargaining unit updates are available online at seiu1000.org

In Solidarity,

Robert Vega
