We Need Your Support

We are reaching out for your support! Your contribution is a commitment to providing a wealth of information to the public sector labor relations community. With your partnership, we can continue to be a unique and valuable resource.

Long-standing supporters, we extend a special thanks for your generous contributions over time. Your donations have allowed us to fulfill our mission to the public sector.

Our Recent Achievements

With the donations we have received from our Partners, and with the assistance of many practitioners who generously volunteered their time to write and update our pocket guides, we published two new titles and eight new editions in the last year alone. We now have 23 guides in the series, with plans to expand even further.

Using Our Web for Recognition

The CPER website is a known destination in labor and employment relations. We currently rank as the fourth program destination on the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment (IRLE) Web, among the busiest research websites at UC Berkeley, with between 5,000 and 9,0000 "hits" per month.

When we established our long-term fundraising campaign, many of our supporters became CPER Partners. Our Partner plan — economical and efficient — provides annual sponsorship options that also benefit our contributors by featuring them prominently on our website. It is our way of letting the public sector community know that you support their needs as well as ours.

Levels of yearly partnerships offer complimentary pocket guides, and give you the option to include your logo and a description of your organization on our home page.

Please Join Us

We hope that many interested unions, attorneys, professional firms, human resources professionals, arbitrators, and mediators will join other key members of the public sector labor relations community in providing crucial support for CPER. The larger your sponsorship, the greater the impact your contribution will have on CPER's statewide audience.

We are hopeful that you will partner with us. The CPER Program has been in existence since 1969. We are optimistic that, with your help, we can extend CPER's run and continue to provide proactive research and publications. We look forward to hearing from you.
