LA County SEIU 721 members,

Thanks to our organizing and action in 2021, we won a strong, six-month contract agreement with Heroes Pay for All across-the-board bonuses, increased healthcare cost coverage, and a new Juneteenth paid holiday!

Our strategic, six-month agreement also puts us in the front of the pack for 2022 bargaining with LA County, meaning we’ll get to set the terms and fight for what we deserve. We are making preparations now to negotiate the best possible contract for the future. 

We know that we will we be successful if we are united behind well-considered bargaining priorities and strategies, and the first step is completing our 2022 bargaining surveys.

Please take a moment to fill out this bargaining survey and let us know what you think are the highest bargaining priorities this year. 

When you have completed the survey, please turn it in to your Worksite Organizer or Union Steward, or drop it off at an SEIU 721 office.

Question Title

* 12. JOBS

Please read the following to understand the threat to our jobs:

In recent years, the Board of Supervisors has continued to privatize County jobs. With Measure J they are diverting hundreds of millions of dollars each year away from County employees and into the private sector. DHS continues to rely on outside registries for nurses, respiratory technicians, and other positions, and they intend to privatize the new “Restorative Care Villages” at County hospitals. 

The County continues to contract out custodial, grounds maintenance, clerical, security, food services, and GAIN case management, even though SEIU 721 members are also doing this work. New money and programs in mental and behavioral health are often diverted to outside contracts. Privatization is a way to get around the salary and benefit standards that we fight so hard to raise up. And privatization threatens job security and removes job and promotional opportunities for SEIU 721 members.

Should 2022 be the year that SEIU 721 members make a stand to reverse this privatization trend?
