As a result of a merger Local 792 is now proud to represent approximately 250 employees in the classified service at Sierra College in Rocklin. In addition to the main campus in Rocklin, the College has satellite campuses in Truckee, Grass Valley and Roseville. Local 792 staff recently had the priviledge of meeting members at a series of meetings to discuss an ongoing reopener topic that needs immediate attention.
We are happy to see that Sierra College members have a long and proud history of active, direct engagement representing themselves at the College and will add to and supplement that effort with Local 792 staff and resources. The UPEC Executive Board quickly approved staffing up to meet the challenge and retained Labor Representative Ryan Friesen who is based nearby in Sacramento to provide day-to-day representation.
Ryan has hit the ground running at the College and is looking for more organizing opportunities in the Sacramento area.
In addition to active employee members, retired Sierra College employees have maintained their Union membership and bring a large group of over 50 retired Union members to our Retiree Council! This is very exciting as they are now the largest group of Local 792 retired members.
Sierra College has beautiful, modern campuses and is a very popular educational institutionin the Sacramento area. Check out their web page: https://www.sierracollege.edu/
