Unit 20 Bargaining Update for Monday, August 5th, 2019
Unit 20 Preserves More Than a Dozen Previous Contract Wins
Monday was a very busy but very productive day for Unit 20. In addition to conducting a joint session with the Unit 17 bargaining team earlier in the morning, Unit 20 met separately with the state that afternoon to continue its progress in protecting and expanding the rights of our members.
After working with Unit 17 to eliminate mandated overtime shifts and enhance member’s work/life balance, the afternoon session alone with the state proved equally worthwhile. There, Unit 20 reached tentative agreements on more than a dozen “roll-over” proposals from previous contract wins, including the victory that extended post and bid rights to Residential Care Specialists at CalVet.
Our Unit 20 team returns to the bargaining table on Wednesday, August 7th to continue fighting for the Medical and Social Service Specialists we represent.
