When we said that member actions were key to winning a good contract …you listened – and responded! Recently, across the state, we’ve held close to 1,000 informational pickets that make our demand to be respected, protected and paid more visible, more impactful.

Those informational pickets—launched with a three-day effort at CalHR headquarters in Sacramento—have delivered the message in hundreds of workplaces.

Earlier in our campaign, we purpled up, stood up, and stood together in union solidarity. We rallied and marched in Los Angeles, Sacramento, and the Bay Area. Now, let’s drive it home! It’s vitally important that we all step up to support the efforts of the bargaining team.

On Wednesday, August 16, Local 1000 members are taking emergency action to demand living wages.

It’s unacceptable that state employee wages are so low that we can’t afford to live in California.

We provide the essential services that keep our state running. We are not backing down until we win the livable wages our families need.

Time is running out. The State of California must act now to pay its essential state workers for the important work we do. Join union members and community allies to demand livable wages NOW.

When:     Wednesday, August 16, 2023
Time:      12:00 Noon – 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided. 
Where:   Capitol Annex Swing Space, 1021 O St, Sacramento, CA 95814
