As a result of a decision issued by the State Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) on June 22, 2023, more than 1,100 workers in the titles of Ambulatory Care Administration Coordinator 2, 3, and 4 (4176, 4175, 4174), Facilities Management Specialist 1, 2, and 3 (5193, 5194, 5195), Health Professional Education Specialist 2 (4390), and Research Administrator 1 and 2 (6204, 6205) across the state are now covered by the CX Bargaining Unit and represented by Teamsters Local 2010.
Now that you are represented, your wages, hours and working conditions are protected through the collective bargaining process and you will be receiving your first Teamsters raise of 4.6% plus a 2% salary step effective June 25, 2023 for biweekly paid employees and July 1, 2023 for monthly paid employees! Additional raises are guaranteed for July 2024 and 2025, which is not the case for unrepresented workers.
Please join us for a Town Hall via Zoom on Thursday, July 20, so that we can welcome you to the Teamsters! You are now united with over 17,000 administrative, paraprofessional, allied support and skilled trades workers who provide critical public services at every University of California and California State University campus, medical centers and laboratory throughout the state, as well as 1.2 million Teamsters members in the U.S. and Canada.
Welcome Town Hall with the Teamsters
Thursday, July 20
Meeting will be held over Zoom. Registration link sent via email.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the link to join the webinar.
In addition to our July raises we also have the right to bargain wage ranges, initial salary step placement, leave accrual conversions, shift differential pay, and title and pay advancement for Level 1 training positions. We will be sending out a bargaining survey to get your feedback on negotiations that are scheduled to begin on September 7. If you are interested in being on our Bargaining Team, please let your Union representative know! Find your Union Rep by clicking here.
Only Union members can participate in the negotiations process, including bargaining surveys, serving on the Bargaining Team, and voting on Union contracts. All newly represented workers are encouraged to unite with our fellow UC workers by signing a membership application today. This sends a clear message to the UC that we are in this together!
We are only as strong as our members and when we bargain, we need to show the UC that we are united and will do what it takes to get the best agreement possible. Unions are funded solely by members and do not receive money from outside interests or corporations. Member dues are necessary to fund critical items such as expert Union representatives, attorneys, negotiators and more. The dues rate is 1.44% of your base earnings and dues will not be deducted until we ratify the new wage scales and step placement for your title. You will see that the Union difference of increased earnings in your paycheck will far outweigh the cost of dues.
If you cannot make it to the meeting, please contact your Union Representative for next steps.
