Unit 1 Alert: Bargaining Update – June 3
9:28 AM - June 3, 2013


Our Unit 1 team – representing Professional Administrative, Financial and Staff Services – spent 18 hours negotiating with the state Friday and Sunday, and signed tentative agreements addressing several of the priorities of Unit 1 members.
Our bargaining team signed a tentative agreement to create a new Recruitment and Retention Committee with members from the state and Unit 1 that will review ten Unit 1 classifications/classification series per year to determine if compensation and benefits are adequate. The committee has the authority to recommend equity adjustments in compensation to the director of CalHR. 
Our team signed a tentative agreement to strengthen the Joint Labor/Management Committee looking at issues in the Disability Determination Services Division (DDSD).  
Our team also signed tentative agreements on numerous existing contract provisions that extend gains achieved in bargaining in previous years.
We are also encouraging all of our members to RSVP for the June 5 “I’m All In!” rally at the Capitol – an action that will tell everyone that we are all in for Local 1000, all in for a fair contract and all in for quality public services for Californians.
In Solidarity,
Brenda Modkins
Unit 1 Bargaining Chair
