Before formal negotiations had begun, the city approached the elected bargaining team with the possibility of extending the current contract. Before engaging in talks with the City, the RN, MTA Service Critical and Miscellaneous Bargaining Teams went back to worksites to talk to members and get their opinion on the possibility of extending the contract.
With strong support from members to explore a contract extension, the SF Citywide Bargaining Team engaged in discussions with management to negotiate the details of the contract extension. The tentative agreement between SEIU 1021 and the city was reached on January 18th.
In the next week, SEIU 1021 members will have an opportunity to review the tentative agreement to vote and extend the contract to June 30, 2019.
