We had one bargaining session this week and both teams spent a lot of time working on the remaining non-economic contract articles to find a path to agreement with management. While we didn’t reach any tentative agreements this week, we are set up to make that progress next week. We are also still waiting for a final budget from the legislature so that we can start digging into our important economic issues, and ensure all workers win meaningful wage increases.
- If you haven’t downloaded a statewide petition in support of bargaining, download a copy here and ask your co-workers to sign it.
- We’re asking all worksites to hold an action each week in June to support a fair contract, you can see a sample action plan here. Talk with your organizer for support in setting up actions.
- Support SEIU members in the child welfare program. If you’ve read the news recently, you know that the foster care program is suffering from a huge staffing problem that is putting our members and vulnerable children at risk every day. Please take a moment to ask your Legislators to fund child welfare.
