Make a Direct Connection to Local 1000’s Leadership, Wednesdays on “Straight Talk”


Our Union is moving forward on many fronts, and we’re making regular connection with our represented employees Wednesday nights on “Straight Talk” – an opportunity for you to learn the news of Local 1000 and get answers to your questions about the issues most important to you.

Each Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., Board Chair Bill Hall—joined by guests that include statewide leaders and subject matter experts—talks with you.

We’re talking about bargaining a new contract, membership growth, telework, and more. On June 1, we heard about how politics matter to state workers in a discussion with Tia Orr, Director of Government Affairs at SEIU California. Hundreds of our represented state workers joined the call, and many more watched the archived version on Facebook and on

Join us on the Zoom call every Wednesday – no pre-registration necessary
