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!

Check out the new searchable DRAFT contract online (some small revisions still to come)

Check out our DRAFT contract
We’ve settled a one-year deal with the District, and we’re headed to vote on Monday! Check out our website for details if you didn’t get last week’s email, and be sure to forward this to anyone you know who isn’t signed up.

Where do I vote?

There are 7 voting sites around town:
We’re starting at 8am with two sites:
834 Toland Street (Buildings and Grounds)
350 Rhode Island Street (the union hall)

At 9am, we’re adding 5 more sites:
555 Franklin Street
135 Van Ness
20 Cook Street
Burton High School
SOTA High School

What are we voting about?

There are two issues on the ballot:
1. Should we ratify the new contract?
2. Should we extend the terms of the officers and bargaining team until the new contract is finalized?

About extending the terms: We are due for an officers’ election at the end of this school year, which will fall right in the middle of bargaining. Your team, after a lot of discussion, thinks that it would be best to put off that election until we’ve wrapped up the contract so we can all focus on it properly.

I want to be on the 2017 Bargaining Team

We will be electing new bargaining team members and alternates at an upcoming chapter meeting, since we have a couple of vacant seats. If you’re interested in working on the new contract, or on getting information out to members about bargaining, please let us know!
