State Response to SEIU Strike

Below is the text of a memo sent to State employees. The memo is dated November 30, 2016

NOTICE OF STRIKE BY SEIU BARGAINING UNIT EMPLOYEES

We want to remind employees of their rights and obligations regarding picketing and job actions.  You are permitted to participate in informational picketing if you are doing so on your own time (e.g., before or after work, or if you have been approved for leave).

However, as a reminder, job actions such as work stoppages, strikes, or sickouts are expressly prohibited by every labor contract between the State and exclusive bargaining representatives. Although the Memorandum of Understanding’s for several bargaining units are presently expired, their no-strike clauses continue to exist pursuant to the provisions of the Government Code section 3517.8.

The Department will act to maintain service to the public.  The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) employees who participate in an illegal job action, such as a work stoppage, strike, or sick out, may be subject to disciplinary action.  CDCR and CCHCS will review each job action on a case-by-case basis.

For more information, see CalHR’s website for frequently asked questions regarding informational picketing, and job actions, at: Link: CalHR Strike Policy.

Oh, in case you were curious, Monday Dec 5 is my regular day off and I plan to spend it far from people in purple shirts.
