The SEIU Local 1000 Statewide Bargaining Advisory Council (SBAC), comprised of more than 150 member-elected bargaining representatives from around the state, has voted to approve sending this Tentative Agreement out to the membership for ratification.

Ratification voting began Monday, August 28, and runs through Friday, September 8. The deadline for ballots to be received is Friday, September 8, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.

All Local 1000 represented workers are entitled to one hour of state release time to attend a ratification meeting and vote. This one hour is in addition to your lunch hour and/or breaks. Your department has been notified of this by CalHR.

However, only Local 1000 members can vote to ratify the contract. If you are not a member but wish to place your vote, your ballot materials provide you with a membership application, which when filled out and signed will allow you to cast your ballot.

There are three ways to place your ratification vote:




1. In-Person Voting

Ratification Voting Has Ended.  

We will hold a series of meetings at worksites across the state. At those meetings, you’ll hear from members of the bargaining team, Local 1000 staff, and other members like you. You’ll also receive a digital or printed ratification summary with the highlights of what we won at the bargaining table, and you’ll be able to mark your official ballot and drop it in the ballot box.
