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 position with Sacramento County.  As the economy has improved many of these positions have not returned but the workload remained.  Now fewer and fewer workers are doing more and more work.  The only way the County can make an intolerable situation more tolerable is by increasing positions to improve working conditions or increasing 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 not accustomed to sit idle as we are ready to act if the County does not make the right choice!
