Region 3 Bargaining Committee

Elected by Acclamation:

Carmen Ramos
Eduard Hairullin
Rosa Trevizo
Joseph Tobin



The Region 3 MOU will expire at midnight on January 31, 2023. To get a head start on preparations, we are officially opening a call for nominations for five members in good standing to be the Region 3 Bargaining Team. The Bargaining Team’s main term of office will be until the end of the new contract that is negotiated. Thereafter, the elected team members, together with the Executive Board, may be called upon to negotiate meet and confers that may arise during the interim period until the next bargaining team is elected.

We are encouraging people to first contact anyone they wish to nominate and ascertain if they are willing to run and serve on a bargaining team. Nominations close at 5:00 PM on September 30, 2022.

Candidates must accept or decline their nomination no later than 5:00 PM on October 5, 2022. This ballot will be conducted via electronic vote, so make sure that the local has your correct email on file. If there is any question as to the local having your correct email, please call or send an email to [email protected], and be sure to put “Email Update” in the subject line. 

The deadline for casting the electronic ballot is set for 5:00 PM, October 12, 2022.

If there are only five nominees, and they accept the nomination, they will be declared to be the bargaining team by acclamation, and there will be no ballots sent out for voting.

We look forward to meeting the new team soon. 

In solidarity,

We have repeatedly stated that the Regions approach to bargaining and their tactics are a clear act of bad faith and illegal. Repeatedly we have dealt with the Regional Courts same illegal tactics at all negotiation tables. The most recent being Region 2. Since hiring an attorney to represent and protect our rights at the table, we have been filing unfair labor practices (ULP) and PERB has issued charges to all our claims.  

In PERB, a claim made by a charging party and the process for PERB to issue a charge is similar to a Judge holding a defendant to answer in a preliminary hearing. In the PERB arena, once the claim is made and filed, a PERB agent will conduct an investigation regarding the claim to determine if it has merit. If the PERB agent determines it has merit, PERB issues a charge and the process to resolve the charge begins. PERB charges can be resolve by settlement, judgement after trial, or withdraw of claim. 

On Monday June 6, 2022, PERB issued charges to our first unfair labor practice claim against the Region 2 courts for bad faith bargaining in our current bargaining. This particular PERB charge is one of the strongest issued in our favor. It mentions no wages increases  as a bad faith labor practice. We will be amending and adding new claims to reflect the most recent bad faith tactics the Region 2 courts have committed. I am attaching the PERB charge for your enjoyment.
