19. September 2016 · Comments Off on Summer Unemployment Insurance Bill (AB 2197) is now on Governor Brown’s desk. Sept. 30 is his deadline. Take action now! · Categories: Uncategorized

This is exciting stuff! AB 2197—the Summer Unemployment Insurance Bill our union has been fighting tirelessly for on behalf of over 284,000 classified school workers in California is now on Governor Jerry Brown’s desk.  AB 2197 will make all school employees in California eligible to receive unemployment insurance when school is out if they meet certain requirements. This is the safety net we all need and deserve.

It’s up to Governor Brown to either sign or veto the bill. We’ve just been informed that he has until Sept. 30 to take action. So we must take action today.

Tell Governor Brown why he should end the cruel summer for school workers by signing AB2197:

  1. Send an email.
  2. Call him at 916-445-2841
  3. Post a message on your Facebook Account and tag @JerryBrown. Be sure to use the hashtags #EndTheCruelSummer and @AB2197

If the Governor signs the bill we’ll move on to the final step – making sure he includes funding for benefits in the state budget. It’s still a fight but we’re closer than we’ve ever been before. We’ve already gotten both the State Assembly and the State Senate to agree that school workers should not have to suffer in the summer. Now it’s up to the Governor.

If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines letting other members do the work of moving this bill, it’s time to rise up in unity with your fellow school workers and say in a collective voice to Governor Brown: “We want economic justice and we want it now!”

School Board Meeting at 6pm, September 8
Public Comment usually around 7pm
555 Franklin Street, on the 5, 47, and 49 bus lines

Over 200 of our student nutrition workers, 200 of our clerks and school secretaries, and nearly 100 other members of our chapter were improperly and unfairly hired as “temporary exempt” workers.

We are not exempt from justice!
We are not exempt from due process!
We are not exempt from fair pay and benefits!

We Are Not Disposable.

On September 8, join your brothers and sisters at the school board to show our strength and demand a path to permanent status for our temporary workers. We deserve respect and job security.

Do you really want to go to work “as needed” — not knowing if you’ll have a job the next day? RSVP using this form, or email josh@seiu-sfusd.org:
