1. You’ll let all the SEIU members at your school or site know to come see you to cast their ballot and get info about the contract
2. We’ll drop off the materials on Monday or Tuesday and give you an intro about how to securely collect the votes
3. You’ll keep the box with you or locked up on the day and make sure everyone votes
4. You’ll bring the box to our chapter meeting before 6pm and get a delicious cupcake!

(If members have questions about the contract that you aren’t sure about, or they need help in another language, we’ll give you a call sheet to refer them to the right person.)

At 7:48pm tonight, your bargaining team signed a tentative agreement that provides important guarantees around school & workplace safety, permanent jobs, and fair wages.

With this contract, we will take significant steps towards parity with our brothers and sisters at the city – 12% over 3 years (5-4-3) plus a $500 one-time payment to support the short term needs of our workers.

Thank you to our members who stood united in support of a fair deal.

Now San Francisco Unified School District – it’s time to settle a fair contract for IFPTE Local 21LiUNA!, Local 261United Educators of San Francisco, and the common crafts!

Stay tuned for more details on the contract – we will have a ratification vote in October!

The District delivered a budget presentation that clearly defines the need for additional local revenue to support essential services in our schools.

We’re very close to agreement on civil service testing and health care protections for workers currently in temporary positions.

The Union advanced a benefits proposal focused on improving retention of mid-career workers and parents, and increasing protections for our retirees.

On Thursday, April 6 we will present our proposal to improve service in Student Nutrition, and improvements to the job posting and career ladder provisions in the current contract.

Bargaining 2017, Day 1: Translation and Temporary Workers

Your union advanced proposals on temporary worker status, preserving healthcare in our uncertain political environment. We were able to reach tentative agreement on one item assuring timely translation and distribution of new contracts.

On Thursday, March 16, we’re preparing to discuss issues relating to worker safety and fair scheduling in the custodial department, ensuring access to affordable health insurance, and providing dental benefits that reasonably address the needs of members.

Remember – it’s your contract too!

Will you stand up and join us in fighting for a fair deal for our families?
