California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment
What We Do
We represent California attorneys, administrative law judges and legal professionals in state employment with tactical efficiency to achieve better wages, benefits and working conditions; and we educate the public, the Legislature, and Constitutional Officers of the significant role of Bargaining Unit 2 in pursuing justice and promoting the general welfare of all California residents.
Negotiation and Administration
CASE negotiates contracts for all Unit 2 employees. Contract negotiation includes meetings and surveys to assess state employee work-related needs, developing and presenting contract proposals, conducting bargaining negotiations with representatives of the Governor, obtaining ratification and funding of negotiated contracts, monitoring their implementation, gaining clarification of items in dispute, and more.
CASE is the approved representative of any Bargaining Unit 2 employee to challenge disciplinary action taken by an employer. This includes representation of Unit 2 employees in internal affairs investigations, Skelly Hearings before agency employers, rejection while on probation, appeal hearings before the State Personnel Board, medical transfer, demotion or separation appeals, and work improvement discussions.
Litigation and Legislative Activity
As a member of Bargaining Unit 2, CASE represents you in legislative activities related to collective-bargaining. This includes arbitrating contract disputes, investigation, documentation, verification, settlement discussions prior to the filing of an unfair practice charge, filing and arguing Writs of Mandate in Superior Court, challenging disciplinary decisions, lobbying for budgetary appropriations, decisions to implement the terms of a proposed contract, and more.
Department and Statewide Issues
Department issues include meet-and-confers, correspondence and related activities regarding classification, policy, practices, complaints, and other issues within the scope of representation.
Statewide issues include meetings, discussions and correspondence with CalHR, State Personell Board, Office of Administrative Law, or other agencies regarding issues within the scope of representation.
Defense Against Outsourcing
All Unit 2 members are represented by CASE to defend against the contracting out of unit employee work. Improper use of highly paid private attorneys is a waste of taxpayer money when compared to the excellent work provided by all Unit 2 members. Additionally, outsourcing undermines the State's commitment to continuing education and expanding the professional growth opportunities for all of our hardworking legal professionals.
