Now that the dust has settled in our local elections, we celebrate our victories – particularly the successful election of our four Guild-endorsed trustees. We’re disappointed about the outcome of Propositions 15 and 16, making us all the more aware that we’re “a blue state but not a blue collar state,” as noted by a colleague at the L.A. County Federation of Labor after reviewing the outcome of several propositions on the November ballot.

During these unprecedented times, the Guild also made significant advances in contract negotiations. Now that we are working to implement the new language (our wins), we need you, our members, to let your chapter presidents know where the language works and where it doesn’t. Communicate with us if language needs clarification.
