As our bargaining team fights for a good contract at the negotiating table, the State continues to disrespect us as we negotiate for a living wage for our workers.

The State offered another shameful, lowball pay raise offer, moving from 6% to 7%. We knew this wasn’t going to be easy, but nothing worth fighting for comes easy. And so, the fight continues!

We’ve launched the Hot Union Summer, a series of informational pickets, with a goal of creating 1,000 pickets by August 14.

Our informational picket lines are growing throughout the state. More and more members are stepping up and organizing pickets, or other actions, outside their worksites to make sure the State, our elected lawmakers, the media, and the general public know we haven’t given up.

Join a picket today. We win when we stand up and stand together. Click here for more information or to start your own informational picket. For a list of upcoming pickets throughout California, please click here
