Take Action Now!


California, like the rest of the country, is in an unprecedented economic situation. Our state is facing a $54 billion budget deficit. We received notice that the state is looking at a 10% cut.

Because we have a union and we have built power, we have a choice in this matter. That is because of you! We’ve worked hard over the last 12 years to build power, to strengthen our political and organizing programs, and to show the true importance of the work that we do as state employees.

Below is an overview of what you can do to take action and help solve this problem!

Show your Support for our Bargaining Team – Call to Action for Wednesday, May 27

Our SEIU Local 1000 Bargaining Team heads to the table on Wednesday, May 27 to fight for pathways and alternatives to mitigate the impact of the 10% cut proposed by the state.
