To say that the first half of this year has been a busy time for all of us at Local 30 would be a huge understatement. But the good news is that it was certainly worth it. As a result of all the work and effort made we have settled and ratified contracts at the University of Southern California, and a number of agreements in Colorado and Arizona, and the KP National Agreement.

Some of those things include bargaining in our units in Arizona and Colorado. This page.
