County Budget Sends Clear Signal for Contract Negotiations

Sacramento County released its proposed budget for the 2017/2018 Fiscal Year at the start of June.  The budget leaves little room to improve the lives of UPE workers through upcoming contract negotiations.  Despite a growing economy, shrinking unemployment, and fast-rising home prices the County claims not to have money beyond the fiscal year.  As all workers know, the Great Recession saw a decrease in positions with Sacramento County.  However, even as the economy improves many of these positions are not returning, but the workload remains.  Now fewer and fewer workers are doing more and more work.  To make this intolerable situation more bearable the County must either increase positions to improve working conditions or increase compensation to reward UPE members for their hard work and dedication to their clients.   

The County will soon need to make a choice about its priorities.  Does the County prioritize supervisors, managers and useless changes like the Service Delivery Redesign or does the County prioritize investment in its workers, the life-blood of the County?  UPE members are ready to act and will not sit idle if the County does not make the right choice!  

TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG!
