Tell San Joaquin County: Our Struggle Is Real!
Rise Up, Speak Out!

Your Bargaining Team needs you! We have told the county how they are having difficulty recruiting and retaining employees. We cannot tell your hardships. Only you can. We need each member to write a paragraph or two (or more if needed) about how the low wages have impacted you and your family. It is essential that you include your name and job title. We need to emphasize to the county that they can only solve this problem; they need to know that you are more than just workers; you are people who have financial responsibilities and are part of the community.

San Joaquin County Public Works wins new boots

1021 Workers at the San Joaquin County Public Works Chapter know that a good pair of boots makes or breaks the job. The goal of the Department of Public Works is to provide quality service to the community and to enhance the public’s quality of life by protecting their investment in the County’s. As part of the bargaining process, the Public Works Chapter has continually fought for the highest-quality boots possible. Our members work in underground facilities, on roadways, across bridges, and in waste facilities.


HERO pay for San Joaquin County workers!

As we gear up for another round of bargaining later in the year, we scored a significant victory for San Joaquin County chapter workers. At the January 11, 2022 meeting of the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors, it was approved that there would be a one-time COVID-19 payment for qualifying employees, totaling up to $1,000 each.

The payment will be included on your February 18, 2022 paycheck.
