Unit 1 Recruitment and Retention Committee – Applications available
Recruitment and Retention 5.17.1 Contract Implementation


Introduction to Application

Recruitment and Retention (R&R) Committee Article 5.17.1 is an important win for SEIU Local 1000 employees represented in Unit 1. The purpose of the language is to provide an avenue for the State and the Union to jointly come to a consensus on recruitment and retention issues that are impacting a classification and to jointly create a report. The language allows for 10 classifications to be discussed per calendar year. The goal of the report is for the 10 classifications to have a joint review and outline of the identified R&R issue to identify and discuss the possible solutions, both short and long term. The report is given/sent to the Director of Cal HR. The director of Cal HR will then determine the next steps for a particular classification.

Please find the link to the Recruitment and Retention Process for SEIU Local 1000 Flowchart here.

All classifications in Unit 1 will now have the opportunity to submit an application for R&R process consideration.

An application will need to be completed online by each applicant. Each submission will be reviewed by the Unit 1 Classification Bargaining Unit Representatives (CBUR) and 10 classifications will be selected for a joint review with Cal HR.

Applications will close on Monday April 15, 2024.
