On Sept. 30, Governor Jerry Brown issued a veto message for Assembly Bill 2155, a bill that would have prohibited the unsafe practice of mandatory overtime in state facilities.

Local 1000 remains committed to fighting the use of mandatory overtime to ensure greater safety for workers, patients and the community at large.

“The Governor’s veto is not the end of our efforts,” said Kim Cowart, Chair of Bargaining Unit 17. “RNs, LVNs and CNAs from across the state organized to send the message that mandatory overtime needs to end. We have laid the groundwork and will continue the fight.”
