Initial bargaining proposals from previous years
The Department of Human Resources scheduled the public meetings listed below in preparation for upcoming negotiations on new labor agreements. To see agreements current and historical, please visit our contracts page.
These meetings provide an opportunity for the public to receive copies of the initial bargaining proposals and counterproposals from the Administration and the state employee unions, and to comment on those proposals and counterproposals. These meetings are required by Section 3523 of the Ralph C. Dills Act, which governs collective bargaining for California state civil service employees.
If it becomes necessary to schedule additional meetings, we'll post the new dates on this page and issue an announcement that it has been updated.
The following public meetings start at 1 PM in the Integrity Conference Room at the Department of Human Resources.
Any proposals or counterproposals presented that day will be posted within one day of the meeting, with links from this page. If no proposals or counterproposals are presented, we'll indicate under the meeting date that "No initial bargaining proposals presented or received."
CalHR's January 25, 2018 Sunshine Letter (Accessible Sunshine Notice) announces four dates for initial proposals.
