Community First Survey
This year we launched our Community First campaign to help improve the quality of public services, hold our county government accountable, and to invest in a cutting edge workforce. As a part of our continued Community First campaign work, we would like to know what your ideas are about how the county could be more efficient, more effective in delivery of services, and areas where you think money could be saved. We also would be interested in hearing from you about county service areas where resources are needed. We will be sharing with the county the major ideas provided by your responses to help shape the recommended budget process for the 2015 fiscal year.
Survey Deadline: Tuesday, Dec. 17, 5:00 p.m.
Please take a minute to fill out this survey. Thanks!

Get involved: Become a steward
Stewards are the representatives of the union on each shift in every department. Stewards make sure the contract is enforced, keep workers informed of union activities and assist their co-workers with work-related problems and issues.

Action in solidarity
Community Solutions, Momentum for Mental Health and Gardner Family Services are all in contract negotiations and facing take-a-ways. We held rallies on Tuesday, Oct. 29 in San Jose and Gilroy to show their management they’re worth a fair contract.
Community First: Not just a slogan
We stood together and put Community First.
