Together with other locals and unions, our members made a heavy lift to ensure that the majority of the CalPERS Board of Directors would continue to listen to and support working families. We were successful in getting David Miller elected to his first term on the CalPERS board. Unfortunately, we were unsuccessful in our attempt to re-elect Michael Bilbrey. Margaret Brown, who is a CalPERS critic, won by a margin of just 6%, which reminds us that every vote counts!
Electing candidates that stand for us is going to be even more crucial in 2018, with more CalPERS Board seats opening up for election, and new attacks on public employee pensions underway. Join us!
