|LOCAL 146 Sacramento County California Employees|
AFSCME Local 146, Sacrament County California Employees represents many chapters in the Sacramento area.
By Justine Roth
June 9 was one of the worst days of my life. My co-workers and I at Sacramento Regional Transit—all administrative employees, all working people—were told we would lose our jobs. It’s supposed to be part of an effort to “change the culture” of the Agency.
But we all know that RT needs to change the culture where it is really needed: at the top with management.
I have worked for the Sacramento Regional Transit District for over 29 years. I love the Agency. I love the people.
It’s where I started my career and, up until recently, it’s where I thought I would be able to end my career with dignity in my retirement years.
All of those hopes changed last week when I received a notice that, after decades of dedicated service to Sacramento Regional Transit, I would be laid off.

MLK Day March
Publication Date: Wed, Jan-21-2015
AFSCME members marched in Sacramento to honor Dr. King’s legacy and shared why it was so important to them to do show solidarity.
New Helvetia Brewery likes to say that they brew beer with a mix of art, science, love and hops. That was evident when AFSCME Local 146 members from the Sacramento area met with the brains behind the brewery, Dave Gull, for a special Union-only tour.
Set in an idyllic setting of a rustic barn surrounded by pinot grigio grape vines, Local 146’s Next Wave members settled into an afternoon learning how wine is made but even better, tasting wine with cheese.
Our Union Business Agent, Karmen Lee Ortloff is a member of the wine club at Scribner Bend and so the barrel room tour as well as the tasting for the Next Wave members was free. “I really enjoy the perks we get being wine club members and I couldn’t spend the day with better company than our Union brothers and sisters,” said Ortloff. “But I want to make sure that this was a personal perk of my membership, so no Union dues money was spent on wine!”
