As a member-run union, Local 1000 relies on its elected officers and representatives to choose the direction we take in our fight for better wages and working conditions. Our leaders are at the forefront of organizing our efforts to give our members—and all Californians—the opportunity to have a good life, live in sustainable communities, and enjoy the fruits of social, economic, and environmental justice.
Our member leadership team determines the priorities of Local 1000. We work together to engage our 96,000 members to enforce our hard-earned contract rights, strengthen the middle class, and give power back to working families.
As a statewide officer, an officer in your District Labor Council (DLC), or as a District Bargaining Unit Representative (DBUR) or Classification Bargaining Unit Representative (CBUR), you have a voice in the activities that matter most to you, your fellow workers, and your families.
Are you innovative and willing to think beyond worksite-specific issues, committed to building a better future for all Californians? Then consider stepping up and becoming an elected leader of Local 1000.
Changes in the 2024 Leadership Elections
Two statewide vice president positions have been eliminated. The duties of the Vice President for Bargaining will transfer to the Chief Negotiator, who will be selected by a vote of the Bargaining Unit Chairs. The duties of the Vice President for Organizing/Representation will be distributed to other leaders and staff.
Ranked-choice voting will be used to elect the Local 1000 President and Vice President/Secretary-Treasurer. This process allows union voters to select candidates that more accurately represent their preferences and ensures the winning candidate will receive 50% +1 (a majority) vote.
Voters will have the option to cast their votes electronically.
