Contra Costa Probation

Welcome to the official campaign webpage for Contra Costa County Deputy Probation Officers seeking change in a REAL UNION, the Teamsters. We need the strength and resources of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters to win better compensation and working conditions and now is the time to do it. The campaign to win Teamsters representation is our first step in achieving the respect we deserve through a better contract.

What are dues in the Teamsters?

Based upon a recent survey, DPO top step in Contra Costa County is 34.16. Using that hourly rate, dues would be 77 dollars per month (34.16×2.25, rounded).
