Your Unit 1 bargaining team met with the State on Tuesday, July 18. Our discussions focused on demanding greater respect for our represented employees at EDD and on preserving their hard-earned rights.

We’re pressing the State to retain the Permanent Intermittent conversion language as is. At the same time, we’re pushing the State for additional responses and movement on our key economic proposals. 

Unit-specific bargaining, along with negotiations at the master table, are being scheduled on a day-to-day basis. When there’s activity at the table, we’ll email and post the results, often on the same day. Click here to read all the recaps of bargaining activity.

What actions can I take to win a good contract?

As the bargaining team works to achieve meaningful progress at the table, it’s important that we keep our focus on Union solidarity and strength building. In order for our demands to be heard, SEIU Local 1000-represented employees need to stand together. So, we encourage you to sign up for our next action on July 25, 26, and 27 when we picket CalHR in Sacramento. Click here to register.
