Service Employees International Union Local 1000 has reached a new three-year labor agreement with the Schwarzenegger administration. The union and the Department of Personnel Administration issued simultaneous announcements of the tentative deal shortly before midnight. It runs from July 1 of this year to July 1, 2013
The agreement includes higher pension contributions for current employees, lowered retirement benefits for newly hired workers and unpaid leave days. In exchange, covered workers receive protections from furloughs and minimum wage during budget impasses. DPA has said it will publish more details on its website in the morning.
