008 WELFARE NON-SUPERVISORY UNIT

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE 

August 14, 2018 

After 6 months of attempting to negotiate with County of Sacramento, we still don’t have a contract. Your 008 bargaining team wants you to know that if we don’t get a tentative agreement on 8/14/18, a strike will be very hard to avoid. We have to get ready! 

HERE’S THE PLAN: MASS “BREAKOUT” AT ALL 008 WORKSITES ON WEDNESDAY 8/15/18.

·        What is a breakout? It’s a demonstration in support of a fair contract, done on your break or lunch hour outside your building.

·        When should we breakout? Either on your morning break or on your lunch hour. Talk it over with your on-site steward, Board member or “Breakout Captain” if you have one, or just amongst yourselves if you don’t, and make the choice collectively about the best time for your building, but BREAKOUT TOGETHER.

·        What should I wear? RED!

·        Should we carry signs? YES. And we will be making signs at the BAC meeting on Tuesday night 8/14/18 at 6:00 PM at the UPE office, 9333 Tech Center Drive, Suite 300. Please attend and represent your worksite. Be a “Breakout Captain”.

·        Where should we go when we “Breakout”? Gather wherever you can be seen by management or the public. If there is a street nearby with a lot of traffic, go there and march up and down the sidewalk carrying signs and signaling motorists to honk their horns in support.

·        How long should the “Breakout” last? At this time, no one should stay out longer than their break or lunch hour. And because that limits our “Breakout” time, it’s very important that everyone at your site should leave together and come back together to show our unity.

·        Can I get in trouble for “Breaking out?” No, not as long as you keep it within your break time or lunch time.

·        Can my supervisor or PM order me not to breakout? NO. Because then they would have to order you not to take a break or a lunch hour. If breaks are an issue at your worksite, it may be a good idea to “Breakout” during lunch, which cannot be shifted by management at the last minute.

·        What if I see everyone breaking out and it is not my break or lunch hour? If you are not on a phone call, take a couple of minutes for a “bathroom break” and swing by where the others are gathering to give them a “shout out” before you head back to your work station.

·        What good will it do to “Breakout?” A Breakout is a dress rehearsal for a STRIKE. It is a show of the commitment and resolve of the 008 UPE members. If Management sees that we are ready and willing to strike, a strike may become unnecessary. 

SEE YOU AT THE BREAKOUT!

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

 August 8, 2018

 Greetings, Union Sisters and Brothers. 

Your 008 Bargaining Team showed up for the negotiations on Tuesday, August 8, 2018, but the County didn’t show up.  Instead, they sent word that they had not been authorized to make any new proposals on pay raises.  The County did agree to meet with your team next Tuesday on August 14, 2018, which is no guarantee they will bargain in good faith when they do show up. 

Your team has proposed COLAs (Cost of Living Adjustments) of 3% in 2018, 3% in 2019, and 2% to 5% in 2020, as well as equity pay adjustments for 4 classifications, pay differentials for a number of programs and units, and an increase in Special Skills Pay.  Our demands are more than reasonable. 

The County does not agree.  Your team recommends action by the entire 008 membership.  So please plan to attend the 008 Bargaining Action Committee meeting on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at 6:00 pm at UPE, 9333 Tech Center Drive, Ste 300. 

There will be a special ACTION UPDATE and SIGN MAKING.  Get ready for organized union membership actions to take place at times and places to be announced shortly. 

 

Get Ready, Stay Ready.  Together we are strong.

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE

 Sutter Superior Court Employees

 Ratify Their Contract

On June 14, 2018, UPE was happy to announce the tentative agreement reached with Sutter Court and was ratified with 100% of the vote accepting the new contract.  After taking over representation back in April, UPE knew our highest priority was to secure a contract for our new unit.  Our members of Sutter Court had been without a contract since December 2017.  After several back to back sessions and a number of proposals, we reached an agreement that will provide our members with extra money in their pockets and increases to look forward to.  

The new contract calls for a 2% salary increase in 2018, a 2% salary increase in 2019, and a one-time payment of $1000 upon ratification.  We preserved health care with language that added additional monies to off-set potential health care increases over the next two years.  Increased the uniform allowance and increased the catastrophic leave donation from 16 hours to 40 hours. We gained stronger representational language which allows us to grieve a wider range of matters covered in the personnel manual.  We established a joint labor management committee which gives us a seat at the table to discuss ongoing concerns or issues with management.

This contract is not the end but just the beginning.  There is still work to be done. We look forward to 2020 where we will build off of where we started and continue to fight for livable wages, benefits and safe working conditions for our members in Sutter County.
