Brown Administration Reaches Tentative Contract Deal With Health and Social Services Workers Union
Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and AFSCME Local 2620 -- the union representing state health and social services workers -- have reached a tentative labor agreement that covers three fiscal years ending July 2016. The deal includes an 8% raise for two job classifications, a 3% increase for all other workers and assurance that the state will consider additional pay hikes for certain jobs. Union members and the Legislature must sign off on the contract before it would retroactively take effect to July 1.
