End of Strike: Back to work on Tuesday, November 22
We have reached a tentative agreement and will be ending our two-day strike. A vote on the tentative agreement will be scheduled within 48 hours.
Read the press release.

Strike: November 18 and 21
On November 16, the County Courts Bargaining team offered workers a “Last Best Final Offer.” We overwhelmingly rejected the offer, which would have resulted in major concessions for future and current retirees. We took a stand on Friday and Monday for RESPECT & DIGNITY for all Court employees. An injury to one is an injury to all.

More photos and videos of the strike on Facebook and Twitter.

On November 16, the Santa Cruz Courts Bargaining team presented SEIU 521 members with a “Last Best Final Offer” indicating that they are not willing to bargain further; it’s time for us to decide if we accept their offer.
