UPE DISAFFILIATES FROM PEU LOCAL #1
On August 18, 2016, 94% of the UPE members who voted agreed to disaffiliate from PEU, Local 1. By doing so gives back full sovereignty to the UPE Board of Directors and UPE Governing Board to make sound decision for the betterment of the UPE membership and the UPE organization as a whole. UPE will now have control over its resources to continue to fight for enhanced wages and benefits and maintain our ability in providing proficient and professional representation.
Detria Terry, Chair of the UPE Board of Directors states: "The result of disaffiliating from PEU, Local 1 demonstrates our continued strength, courage and willingness to fight for our proper respect and what we deserved as the then largest affiliate of PEU, Local 1. UPE members are intelligent, strong and will diligently defend our core union values. UPE will question the issues that involve our union and will not be influenced or intimidated by any other labor organization that does not share our same values. UPE Board of Directors and UPE Governing Boards have the spirit, knowledge and ability in leading the union. Always remember, the union is the members (UPE has the greatest members) and by working together we will obtain a strong union work environment. UPE is dedicated in continuing to lead the fight to receive livable wages, sturdy benefits and solid contracts. Together we are very strong!!!"

008 Bargaining Unit
Expansion of Educational Incentive
UPE Local 1 met and conferred with the County on several occasions to negotiate an expansion of the education incentive. Your bargaining team was looking to expand the classifications covered in the educational incentive by adding ES, HSS, CDS, SES, CDA.
The County led your bargaining team to believe that they were open to this expansion. However, during our last meeting on August 17, 2016 the County once again showed their true colors. They only offered to expand to include 1 classification coverage for over 1,000+ of our members. Here again, the County demonstrated their disregard of UPE Local 1 members by failing to be upfront about their true intentions.
It is clear that the County never intended to seriously consider expanding the educational incentive. The County missed an opportunity to reward UPE Local 1 members for their hard work and educational skill sets. Your negotiations team has not given up the fight and will continue to press the county to reward our members.
