Jason VanegasJason Vanegas, Office Assistant III
“I support the technology department that allows the County to function on a daily basis, providing the community with state-of-the-art tech services. Without a solid contract, the services we provide will be threatened.”


Aida TavarezAida Tavarez, Pretrial Services Officer III
“I work hard for the clients I serve and truly take their lives into consideration. Yet expectations are high and the appreciation is low. Our work saves the County millions every year because we help people who are ‘innocent until proven guilty’ to be released from custody to return to their jobs and families while dealing with their pending cases.”


David ParkerDavid Parker, Justice System Clerk II
“I communicate with public safety and community organizations. I assist the public with record clearance apps and also help victims communicate with court and probation officers. The mismanagement and misuse of public funds should not be carried on the backs of County workers and vital community services.”


Sam PincusSam Pincus, Eligibility Worker II (DEBS)
“I help families by providing services to feed, house, and make affordable healthcare accessible. I’m ready to strike because the County is unwilling to provide us with a fair contract and competitive wages—no increase in cost of living wages in five years. This equals a pay cut since the cost of living in Santa Clara County has risen.”


Gerri HettenbachGerri Hettenbach, Diagnostic Imaging Tech I – CT
“I provide imaging services that show doctors what is wrong with their patients so they can give them the proper care. I believe in providing first class service to our community. However, with staffing shortages and lack of experienced technicians, it’s becoming impossible.”


Enrique AlvarezEnrique Alvarez, Social Worker III (DFCS)
“I work with children and families that have been impacted by abuse, drug addiction and domestic violence. In order to continue to work with families, I need the County to invest in its workers.”


Elaine Saulter, Rehabilitation Counselor
“We are dedicated to client-centered care, helping people face their addictions and help them to change the course of their lives.  I am ready to strike because I am not getting respect for the service I provide. Enough is enough!”


Gina SmithGina Smith, Sr. Health Services Rep
“I help patients obtain quality health care. I have given my 100% always with no givebacks. I have given patients understanding with none from the County. I am ready to strike because the County does not care about me or my family or for my years of service.”


Ruben MorenoRuben Moreno, Social Worker III
“I access, educate and train the public to be licensed caregivers for the County’s abused and neglected children. I provide essential services to support the County’s neediest families and children. However, my family is important too and deserves livable wages and affordable health benefits.”


Emilio ManriqueEmilio Manrique, Hospital Stationary Engineer
“I maintain plan operations: power, heating and cooling, 24-7-365. We’ve had enough of the County asking for concessions. It’s time for a fair contract.”
