CEMA Hosts "Coffee with Dr. Jeff Smith"

Your Professional Development Committee is pleased to host our Santa Clara County CEO in a Zoom event with Dr. Jeff Smith.

Join us on March 10th to hear more about the HERO pay Dr. Smith advocated for, CEMA's special relationship with Executive Leadership and a chance to ask Dr. Smith questions directly in a Q&A session.  This special event will be recorded and uploaded to our YouTube Page for those that cannot make the live event. 

Monterey Management Unionizes with CEMA / OE3 

Managers, Supervisors and Individual contributors in Monterey County have decided to unionize - growing our Union family. The Monterey Unit of 507 potential members is in the midst of a membership drive to hit the coveted 320 number that will support a 4th Business rep that will represent the Monterey Unit.  

As we welcome our new brothers and sisters this is a great opportunity to help a previously un-unionized group cement pension and health care benefits, wage increases and workplace rights many of us in the County and Court take for granted. 

This is the first CEMA Voice that the Monterey group is receiving and we look forward to featuring their triumphs, challenges and news stories here as we develop.

Keep an eye out for the 1st Bargaining Survey that will be coming out shortly and keep helping to recruit.

In the meantime - welcome from all of us.
