SEIU Local 1000 and the Schwarzenegger administration have a tentative labor pact, as we report in this breaking news story.
Of course, the Legislature and the union rank and file have to sign off on the deal. We expect our elected state workers will burn the proverbial midnight oil tonight in last-minute budget debate.The union will provide more details to its members next week.
So now, with this big contract looking like it's done, will the other unions follow? Or will they resist similar concessions? Most contract years, the first deal becomes a template that others follow. But this isn't most years, is it?
