Negotiations Update

008 Contract –

Tentative Agreement Ratified

Your 008 UPE Negotiations Team is excited to announce that the 008 membership ratified the new contract with Sacramento County by an overwhelming margin of 91% to 9%.

     This contract was hard-fought, and the 008 UPE Negotiations team could not have done it without the support of the membership! Thank you for your continued support!

     UPE would like to give a special thank you to all the 008 UPE Negotiations Team members who put in many hours of work to make this contract possible. The contract will be effective as of June 19, 2022. However, the agreement will not go before the Board of Supervisors until July 12, 2022. As a result, workers will not see the additional money until the August 5, 2022, paycheck. This paycheck will reflect a retroactive increase to June 19, 2022.

DHA

Implicit Bias Training

UPE met with DHA on June 13, 2022, to discuss an upcoming implicit bias training for all staff. UPE called for the meeting to better understand the reasoning behind the meaning and to assess its potential impact on our members. UPE is especially concerned that the training is for all DHA employees, but there are only four available sessions. This is likely to cause a significant workload impact for those employees not attending the training.  

As a result of the meeting and UPE’s questioning, the Department made the following changes:

  • The training is voluntary, and anyone already scheduled may opt out.
  • Use of cameras during the training is not required as UPE and DHA are still negotiating over the use of desk cameras in DHA.
  • Workers are encouraged but not required to actively participate in the training.

DHA – 005/008

On June 10, 2022, UPE and DHA continued to meet over the Department’s decision to install web cameras on all employees’ desks.  UPE is very concerned about the potential for the Department to use the cameras to further monitor our member’s actions at work.  The Department repeated it is their intent to only use the web cameras for trainings and meetings.  The Department further stated they will not be...
