CEMA Show of Force at the Board – Smart Tactics with Targeted Results
To watch these powerful speakers watch here at time code 44:00 of the June 4th Past Meeting Video
More than 80 CEMA members shirted up, showed up and spoke up at the Board of Supervisors meeting this past Tuesday.
CEMA has met with the County for several months now. We are participating in interest based bargaining, IBB, which is very different from the traditional bargaining that 521 and other County Unions are participating in. IBB is a process where each side identifies issues, and then collaboratively creates solutions, evaluates the solutions and crafts language for the contract.
Good afternoon CEMA members,
The challenge process for ITCC has drawn to a close for our members who were impacted – many thanks to all who helped bargain, advocate, represent and revise the job specifications, salaries and governance.
The outgoing CEMA Board, newly elected CEMA Board and Staff wanted to take time to wish you and your family a very Happy Winter Holidays! We look forward to working with you and all our fellow CEMA members as we build towards a new contract. A contract that we hope will address the concerns that you and your co-workers have communicated to us.
I want to share with you my experience with UBTs. It started as another campaign and a slogan that meant little if anything – Unit Based Team or UBT. On the surface, the idea was rather simple – a group of coworkers coming up with an idea to improve something in their department.
In reality, the UBT process was transformational for the Renal Care Center (RCC) in more ways than I could imagine.
After two years of concerted effort by staff, officers and leadership of CEMA and OE3 as of pay period 23 we have reached 1,607 members. Why is this important? Because its about building power. Power to get improved benefits, wages and working conditions in our next contract.
We still have nearly 800 non-members who need to sign up for CEMA membership.
