October’s Leadership Academy was so successful that we decided to host

another as an opportunity to get new worksite leaders engaged and build on

the work discussed last fall.
 
Please post the Leadership Academy flyer in your breakrooms, offices, and

cubicles and forward the RSVP link with a personal invite to your coworkers

who want to help build more power for your Union in Contra Costa County.

If you did not attend in October, the Academy is an opportunity to get

more involved and updated on the work of your union.  We need members like

you to step up and help lead your union into the future.  We build power by

getting involved and organizing.  

If you did attend, the Academy is a great way to stay networked—we will also

have new material we want to share!



 

STOP THE BUDGET CUTS!
 
 
During our immensely successful 9 Union Healthcare Justice and Contract
Campaign, we learned Contra Costa County's budget and reserves are in the
healthiest place they have been in years.  Despite this, the County
Administrator is now pushing unreasonable cuts to essential County services
and programs that the community depends on and Local 21 members help
provide.  We will not stand by and allow such a rich county to run its public
sector on a shoe-string budget!

TO STAND UP TO UNNECESSARY AUSTERITY MEASURES IN
CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, WE NEED TO FIGHT BACK TOGETHER. 
 
Attend the Board of Supervisors meeting on TUESDAY, APRIL 16, to let
your voice be heard!
 

    

 

Local 21 Wide: Your Regional Update
 

As a Local 21 member, you are one of over 11,000 union members across
the Bay Area. Here in Contra Costa County, Local 21 also represents city workers
in Richmond fighting for wage equity. 


Last Tuesday these members rallied in front of Richmond City Hall to demand City
Council Members grant them their first Cost of Living Increase (COLA) in four years.

Look out for opportunities to support your fellow union members during their contract fight.
Solidarity forever!
