008 Welfare Non-Supervisory
November 19, 2015
Your 008 Bargaining Team met for mediation with the County on November 19, 2015. While we feel some progress was made during the mediation, no agreements were reached at this session.
Court Office Technical
November 23, 2015
Your Court Office Technical bargaining team met with the mediator on Friday November 20 at the UPE union Hall. The Court attitude towards it employees and the sacrifices that we made to assist them in their budget crisis seems to fall upon deaf ears with the soon to be Presiding Judge Kevin Culhane. It appears that Sacramento Superior Court will be funneling hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars into IT systems as they have a point to prove with the Judicial Council. In the meantime, they would like for UPE members to continue to make ends meet so that they can try to accomplish this mission.

Tentative Agreement Reached!
The Court and your bargaining team met on Monday, November 23, 2015 for the 1st round of mediation. After several hours of mediation both sides reached a tentative agreement. This agreement will go back to the professional unit for a ratification vote sometime next week. The tentative agreement includes the following, 3%, 3%, 2%- 3% salary increase, no reduction to your Kaiser Health Care premiums (stay status quo), a onetime payment of $1,850 per member, longevity pay of 1% for members with 20-24 years of court service and an additional 1% for members 25+ years of service. The professional unit took into consideration that their sisters and brothers in the office technical unit have different needs and get paid much less in salaries than they do. They will support their efforts in reaching a successful agreement which will meet the needs of their bargaining unit.
