How to Support State Scientists
Stand with the over 4,000 State Scientists who protect the public from life-threatening diseases, safeguard our wildlife and abundant natural resources, ensure the safety of our food, and protect our air and water from toxic waste and pollution!
Here are some ways to show your support for CAPS in our ongoing fight for a fair contract.
Sign On Letter
We urge you to demand that Governor Newsom and his Administration swiftly invest in California State Scientists to ensure California is able to fulfill our obligations to the world to avoid collapse.
Walk the Line with CAPS:
The CAPS Bargaining Team has called for a rolling three-day strike starting THIS Wednesday (11/15), Thursday (11/16), and Friday (11/17). Stand up and join us!
