We are employees of West Contra Costa Unified School District. We work as aides, custodial and maintenance staff, grounds workers, clerical staff, safety officers and more.
We have come together to win a real power with a real union – the Teamsters. For too long we have seen our wages remain stagnant and our healthcare costs rise under the failed leadership of Local 1. As dedicated public employees serving a large California school district, we deserve far better than Local 1’s poor representation and lack of bargaining strength.
Teamters Local 856 has been a leader in raising standards for public-sector workers throughout the region, including Contra Costa County workers, Mt. Diablo Unified School District workers, and more. Local 856 has a strong record of negotiating reduced healthcare costs for workers and improved wages.
That’s why we are unified and determined to win real union power as members of Teamsters Local 856.
