You can help by organizing voters where you work!

We want every member to learn about the new contract and cast their vote on Wednesday, October 25. To make sure everyone has a chance to vote, we’re hoping you can help us by hosting a vote at your worksite. It’s easy!
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.)

 

Yes, I can host the vote at my worksite!

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.
