Cost Savings Task Force Begins Collaboration with the State to Identify $200 Million in Savings

Our Cost Savings Task Force, made up of eight Local 1000 member leaders and eight members of the State—including a representative from the Department of Finance—was created to leverage our power and drive the State to find $200 million in cost reductions. These savings would then be redirected to employee compensation for July 2021. While $200 million is a relatively small amount of money in terms of the overall budget, it’s vital to the working people we represent.


Make Politics Matter. Vote Today!

As always, our members head to the polls ready to fight for social and economic justice for all Californians. But this year, Local 1000 members who have been part of that fight will face another choice, as the state considers nine major ballot measures, three of which we are highlighting today.
