Gov. Jerry Brown today announced two appointments to the California Public Employment Relations Board.
Both jobs pay $128,109 per year and require Senate confirmation. The five-member board administers the collective bargaining laws that cover state, local and regional public employees in California.
Appointee Eric Banks, 41, of San Diego, filled several roles for Service Employees International Union Local 221 for the last 13 years, including president and director of government and community relations, according to a news release from the governor's office.
Berkeley resident Priscilla Winslow, 60, was a legal adviser for the board until last year. A UC Davis law school graduate, Winslow launched her legal career in 1977 as chief counsel for the Clerical and Allied Services Employees Union, according to Brown's announcement. She was assistant chief counsel for the California Teachers Association from 1996 to 2012.
Banks and Winslow are both registered Democrats.
