With state worker unions at the bargaining table negotiating with Gov. Jerry Brown for more pay, among other issues, The State Worker has been running a series looking at what the state workforce earned in 2011 and 2012..
There are still 10 bargaining units at the negotiating table after contracts for most state workers expired Monday. The only contract to be renegotiated so far, that for the nine bargaining units represented by SEIU Local 1000, is still awaiting ratification. Local 1000 members will continue voting on the contract through next Monday.
Salaries are a big negotiating point for unions after years of pay cuts, furloughs and personal leave time.
Below are the links for the series, which shows salary statistics for each bargaining unit:
SEIU Local 1000, Part 1

Highway patrol officers
Prison and parole officers
Doctors and dentists
Health and social services
