Why Your Membership Matters

In August, SFUSD responded to an information request about our members based on their interpretation of their legal responsibility. As a result, this week, the Freedom Foundation is sending out postcards targeting our members to try and break them off from union solidarity.

Make no mistake, this is an attack on our power at work and at the bargaining table. It’s an attack on our ability to negotiate fair pay and high quality services for the kids and families of San Francisco. We must stand together and tell these right-wing organizations WE ARE UNITED.

Just this year, SEIU 1021 at SFUSD negotiated almost $7 million in raises for our members, additional hours and professional development for clerks and SNS workers, and improvements to work protections and career ladders. That work goes on, but we need each of you to stand together to make real progress.

United in our union, we’ve not only won strong contracts and enforced them but also amplified the voices of working people in our economy and society. So-called “right to work,” funded by the corporate elites and the wealthy 1%, seeks to take away our ability to join together to negotiate a fair return on our work. Ultimately, their goal is to privatize public services and pay bottom-of-the-barrel wages to line their own pockets.

While these are real challenges for us, they’re not insurmountable if we hold firmly to the values that unite us: fairness, freedom, and equal opportunity for everyone to succeed. This moment in our history is calling on all of us, as union members and as members of a social and economic justice movement, to stick together and use our power in numbers.

Stand with us. I believe that we will win.
