IT Classification Survey
Make your voice heard


Local 1000 has launched a comprehensive survey that will advance the effort to review job specifications that have not been updated in decades.

We have made it a high priority to resolve the problems with IT classifications, training, compensation and outsourcing. The state has committed to working with the union by modernizing the IT classification system. Both parties recognize a mutual interest in adapting to the changes in a field with a highly competitive labor market. 

“Survey participation by every IT employee is essential to making our case stronger in our discussions with the California Department of Human Resources,” said Brenda Modkins, Chair of Bargaining Unit 1. 

The online survey is available from June 16-30, 2015.


We believe that any new classification and selection process must have the following outcomes:

Recruit and retain a skilled IT workforce;

  • Provide for training opportunities and promotions for current employees;
  • Improve compensation;
  • Reduce outsourcing;
  • Simplify the cumbersome and outdated testing process

“IT employees keep the state’s business running, yet the state’s classifications have failed to keep up with the rapid change in technology and evolving duties,” said Margarita Maldonado, Local 1000 Vice President for Bargaining. “The work they do is fundamental to the state and they need to be properly compensated.”
