On April 13, Local 1000 will go to the table with the state to begin bargaining a new contract. The union’s 63 elected member leaders have one goal: to bring the 95,000 state workers we represent the best contract we’ve ever had.

Each unit’s bargaining team plays a crucial role: ensuring that the specific needs of their members are recognized and represented. The nuts and bolts of the negotiating process is twofold: Unit specific issues are negotiated by representatives of each of the nine bargaining units, and issues that affect all our represented employees such as pay, benefits and retirement are negotiated at the master table.

Unit 14: Printing Trades

Bargaining Unit 14 represents nearly 400 employees at the Office of State Publishing where the state budget, bills and laws and other state documents are printed. This unit also includes printers and graphic artists in individual departments throughout the state.
