SEIU leadership sells out with 4.5% paid in two years (no increase until July 2014) this puts State Workers behind by 15.5% over 10 years for lack of COLAs. When all is said and done the State workers paycheck (after the medical insurance increases and pension increases put on us during the last contract) will catch up to 2009 take home pay by 2015. We are still going backwards and SEIU leadership will be selling this as a victory. MEMBERS SHOULD REJECT THE TENTATIVE AGREEMENT WITH A NO VOTE AND DEMAND COLAS for all the years we went without, and make up pay for the increase medical and pension premiums, and the two stolen holidays and the three years of furloughs! 100 billionaires in California and the State Workers still have to pay for the Obama/Brown austerity!
