We derive incredible benefits from our union contract and yet few people know what those are or how to take advantage of them. In addition, it can be hard to get hold of a good shop steward or union field representative. I started myunioncontract.com in order to help you get the most out of your union contract and, more broadly, your union dues.


I spent a short time in graduate school at UC Berkeley before discovering the field of clinical laboratory science. After dropping out, I took my undergraduate degree (molecular biology) and my laboratory research experience (at UCSF) and joined the KP Regional Genetics Laboratory, where I’ve worked since 2012.

I quickly learned the importance of our four-hundred page union contract (I happen to come from a family of lawyers). I began consulting the contract regularly and, in 2015, I took an opportunity to become a union shop steward.
