TODAY 1pm: Support AFSCME 2428 at EBRPD Board Meeting


AFSCME Local 2428 workers of the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD) could use some support. They are at an impasse in contract negotiations, and will be speaking out at the public board meeting today at 1pm (meeting starts at 2pm), at 2050 Peralta Oaks Court, in Oakland (map: http://mapq.st/10fCPym).

See Amy’s email below for details of their grievances. Teresa LeYung-Ryan’s blog post can also be read here:

Family and Friends
My co-worker (and budding writing coach/author) Teresa LeYung-Ryan, has done a great job of putting together info about the impasse of our labor contract negotiations with the East Bay Regional Park District. If you know of and have enjoyed the East Bay Regional Park District’shttp://www.ebparks.org/ public parks and interpretive facilities in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, then please consider calling your EBRPD Board of Director (info below). Even though I used to be able to live on the income I earn from my current position, this will no longer be the case if we agree to their concessions.

I’ll be at the bi-monthly board meeting this Tuesday with many of my AFSCME Local 2428 co-workers advocating for a fair contract and sharing my personal concerns and experience. Thanks for caring and supporting local living wage jobs.
Peace,
Amy Coulter
