Retirement Security Committee (RSC) of Local 1021 works to achieve a secure retirement for all workers. Active and retired members of the union are encouraged to join our group. Our meetings are usually the second Saturday of the month at our Fairfield office at 2300 Boynton Ave. The meetings are videoconferenced. At this time, the only officer of the committee is the Chair. For more info on the RSC, please contact Harry Baker at email@example.com, or Lathe Gill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As of January 2013, the RSC consists of 21 voting delegates. Members can become additional delegates by appointment from their county COPE committee. If there is no county COPE committee in your area, you can seek appointment from the Area Rep(s) to the Executive Board from your region.
New Committee Chair
Harry Baker has served the last 2 ¾ years as the first elected Chair of the Retirement Security Committee. Harry will not be running for re-election to this position, as he will be retiring this year. Two members are running for this position. Please see the election page for info about 2013 Executive Board election.
California Retirement Security for All
The SEIU unions in California will be running a campaign this year called Retirement Security for All (RSA). One main component is the implementation of SB1234. This legislation from 2012 creates a savings plan for employees who work in the private sector or for non-profits. The bill requires a study period this year. This plan is called California Secure Choice, and is a high priority for SEIU.
Another key program in this campaign is supporting efforts at CalPERS to implement their plans for infrastructure investment. The staff at the Capital Stewardship department of the International Union is also working on a plan to take to retirement systems, called Investing for the 99%.
