Save jobs and services in Alameda County: Volunteer to pass Measure W and Prop 15
Oct. 1, 2020

From the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, public workers in Alameda County have put our safety on the line to continue faithfully serving our community. We are the backbone of the County’s response to this pandemic, and responsible for saving countless lives. As the pandemic continues, we made it clear to the County  that we would not accept balancing the budget on our backs.

Alameda County Bargaining Update
March 13, 2019

Tentative Agreement Reached!
 Your bargaining team is happy to announce that after over a month of meetings since January, a tentative agreement on a 3-year contract extension with the County has been reached. The agreement is a significant improvement on the extension offer that was rejected in 2018. In the coming weeks our Union plans to hold multiple worksite meetings and Town Halls to answer questions and share more about the tentative agreement. Extension ratification vote will be scheduled for mid-April.

Members Make the Case for Salary Adjustments

Members representing 33 classifications made Salary Adjustment presentations to the County to demonstrate the need for salary adjustments.

This is the largest number of presentations for salary adjustments in any contract year. While there is no guarantee any classification that presented will receive a salary adjustment, the presentations created an opportunity for consideration by the County for salary adjustments if a contract extension agreement is reached and ratified.

Alameda County Bargaining Update
Feb. 8, 2019

On February 8th your bargaining team held their second meeting with management to discuss a possible contract extension. We expect management to propose wage increases the next session. 

The proposal was largely the same as the proposal the members voted on in 2018, with one significant difference: The County is no longer seeking to implement a “Vacation Hard Cap” on all county employees. This proposal was a source of confusion and frustration in 2018, and your bargaining team is very happy to see that proposal disappear.
