008 Bargaining Update
April 14, 2014
Your 008 bargaining team met with the state mediator on Monday, April 14th. We are pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with the County.
We have agreed to a 2-year contract, ending on June 30th, 2015. There are NO changes to medical benefits and NO additional retirement contributions.
Effective July 2014, all 008 members will receive a 1-2% cost-of-living increase, based on the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI), as well as an agreement to a 4-day, 40-hour work week (4/10 schedule).
We have convinced the County that workload is a serious concern and we have agreed to immediately begin addressing these issues through the Workload Policy Board and the Program Specific Workgroups.
Agreement was also reached that all records of discussion, counseling memos, letters of reprimand, or other forms of discipline issued or pending as part of the 2013/2014 negotiations job actions shall be withdrawn and destroyed.
Please join us for the next BAC meeting on Wednesday, April 23rd at 6:00 pm at the UPE Union Hall at 5370 Elvas Ave. All tentative agreements will be discussed.
Stay tuned for information on the ratification vote!

United Public Employees Local #1 represents 3,600 Sacramento County workers who have been working without a contract since June 30, 2013.
Since 2010, there have been no cost of living adjustments and workloads have increased. The Union has requested very modest raises and maintenance of current medical plans. The County has denied reasonable raises and demanded the right to arbitrarily change workers' medical benefits without having to negotiate. County workers cannot risk a raid on their benefits and need wages that keep up with the cost of living and allow us to support our families.
United Public Employees Local #1 asks you to join us in supporting labor peace by petitioning the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors to:
- Negotiate upcoming health care changes with the Union and by mutual agreement.
- Negotiate a cost of living increase that keeps up with inflation.
- Negotiate recognition of county time in service.
