Bargaining update for Friday, May 29
State Negotiators Propose Reduction in Pay through Two-Day PLP Program
On Friday, May 29, 2020, Local 1000’s bargaining team returned to the table with state negotiators and received the state’s first proposal which outlined a 9.23 percent pay cut.
The state’s proposal would use a Personal Leave Program (PLP) to achieve the payroll reduction. The PLP would take the form of a two-day or 16 hour a month reduction in this fiscal year and would end with the June 2021 pay period.
After receiving the state’s proposal on Friday, Local 1000 President Yvonne R. Walker said she would take it back to the bargaining team for review. You can watch President Walker’s video recap here.
The Local 1000 Bargaining Team will go back to the negotiation table with the state on Monday, June 1, 2020.

Take Action Today! One of the most effective ways we can reduce California’s budget deficit is to demand an investment from the federal government into our states and local governments. The House has passed a bill called the HEROES Act to provide necessary funding to the critical services we provide to Californians. The Senate leadership is refusing to discuss the bill. We must call on the Senate to invest in working people – not just corporations. You can call your Senator by dialing 844-967-2163. You can learn more by visiting our Take Action page.
