  • Sacramento County Progress!
    Posted On: Feb 11, 2019

    Sacramento  -  An important part of the most recent contract settlement for our IT Professional Unit in Sacramento County was to continue discussions on a couple of important topics that were not able to be resolved as part of the contract.

    Regarding contracting out bargaining unit work, Sacramento County has a long history of hiring contract employees for IT work.  Given the nature of IT work, some of this is understandable and necessary, especially for short term projects.  It has appeared, however, that the County has been too quick to go to contractors when current staff or new hires might be more appropriate.  In an effort to turn this long-standing trend around, UPEC successfully negotiated a side letter where the County agreed to provide notice and an opportunity to meet, discuss and review its decisions to hire contractors.  Over time, this will allow UPEC to monitor contract work in an effort to keep IT work in our bargaining unit.

    Regarding a Classification Study initiated by the County to restructure the IT classification series, the Union was successful in negotiating a 10% pay difference between the II and III levels of IT classifications rather than the 6% pay difference the County proposed.

    Another matter the Union is reviewing is the extent to which unrepresented classifications might be treated better than our Unit classifications in restoring past concessions.  If we determine there is disparate treatment we will work to address this issue even though we are mid-term in a contract.

    These efforts show that persistence is an important part of successful Union representation.  Credit to UPEC Board member Kelly Newell and Labor Representative Ryan Heron for keeping this project on target!
