Local 1000 Veterans Committee Shows Appreciation to Those Who Serve

May is Military Appreciation Month, an opportunity to express gratitude to the current and past members of our Armed Services—and their families—who defend the interests and security of our nation every hour and every day of the year.

Our Local 1000 Veterans Committee is committed to being a strong advocate for our represented employees who came to state service after their military service. In essence, they’re in a second career where they work to serve all Californians.

Join Us on June 8 in Sacramento at the Rally for a Living Wage!

We care for Californians every day, but too many of us can’t care for ourselves. We need to show the Governor and Legislature that we’re committed to ensuring every state worker makes a living wage. It’s going to take strength in numbers to win the raises we need to support our families.

That’s why we need you to join our March to the Governor’s Mansion to demand our state invests in working people! You don’t have to be a member to join our march.

Let’s demonstrate our strength and our demand for dignity!
