The County Says We’re Not a Priority
It's Time to Change That

Our Union Coalition Bargaining Team, representing 9 Unions and 6000 + County employees, met with the County management team the morning of Friday May 13th. The County’s negotiators continue to keep an outrageous proposal on the table, a “poison pill” proposal that will take money away from our general wage increases if we bargain over anything economic at our local union bargaining table. The County only moved 1% in wage increases in the last year of the contract from 3% to 4%. They did offer a one-time $2,000.00 pandemic relief payment, but it was unclear who would receive it.

Keep Showing Up for a Fair Contract!
SEIU Local 1021 Contra Costa County Bargaining Update

After meeting twice with County management as part of our union coalition, the County has not yet offered an acceptable economic proposal. To solve our staffing crisis, and to be fair to our dedicated County workers, we must receive a wage proposal that puts us well ahead of skyrocketing inflation and keeps us competitive with other Bay Area employers!

To show the County that we mean business, we will be holding a dozen rallies over the next few weeks: check out the schedule and RSVP at the following link (or scan the QR code with your smartphone camera):

Stopping Runaway Healthcare Costs in Contra Costa County

Three months ago, SEIU 1021 members joined a 9-union coalition to negotiate with Contra Costa County and put an end to runaway healthcare costs. The campaign used strength in numbers to win a new contract with guarantees for a fairer healthcare cost-share with the County, increased wages for the next three years, a seat at the table with the County and health plan providers to keep premium increases in check, and much more.
