  • May 14
  • May 23
  • June 5

As your Bargaining Team resumes discussions with CalHR, our priorities are to:

  • Represent and advocate for you and your colleagues
  • Ensure that State Scientists are paid equitably to our peers within and outside of California State Government 
  • Close the Gender Pay Gap in California State Civil Service

As your Bargaining Team prepares to return to the table, we encourage members to stay informed and engaged. As always, our true leverage at the bargaining table comes from our collective strength. Our power comes from our numbers, commitment, and unwavering dedication to achieving a contract that reflects the value of our work! 

Save the Date: Thursday, May 9 –  SACRAMENTO RALLY AT THE CAPITOL, 12-1pm

Let’s kick off getting back to the table for the first time as a local of UAW strong, and show our Boss, Gavin Newsom, that State Scientists are united in our demand for a fair contract, and we will do what it takes to get what we deserve: equal pay for equal work. 

Every action counts! Every voice counts!  We win in relationship to the power that we build! Grab your colleagues, friends, and family and show up at the West Steps of the Capitol.

  • WHEN: 12-1pm
  • WHERE: West Steps of the Capitol, 1315 10th Street, Sacramento, CA 95814
  • WHAT: Attend a rally and hear from speakers including elected officials, fellow State Scientists, UAW members from other locals, and supporters.
