Members invited to observe counting at Local 1000 headquarters


After a months-long bargaining and organizing effort to win a contract that respects us, protects us, and pays us, the two-week ratification voting period ends on Friday, September 8, 2023. The process of counting the members’ votes will happen on Saturday, September 9.

The results of the ratification vote will be emailed and posted to our website this weekend.

Sorting and counting of the ballots begins at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 9, at Local 1000 headquarters in our one-story building at 1325 S Street in Sacramento.

Members are welcome to observe the count once their membership is verified and can arrive as early as 9:30 a.m.

All attendees are encouraged to use the side door at 1325 S Street alongside Rice Alley to enter. Signs with contact information regarding readmittance will be posted at all entrances. There will be a designated seating area for observers with room for approximately 20 people provided. Children and/or family members are discouraged from attending due to limited space. We anticipate the process will take at least 2-3 hours.

Parking will be limited in our designated lot due to the fact that another event in and around the R Street corridor coincides with the vote count. Please be aware that this will include street closures between 11th and 14th streets leading into R Street. Observers are encouraged to park on S Street or find other public parking areas nearby.
