SEIU 1021

Our Members Have Voted YES 
To Ratify Our Tentative Agreement with the City!


The votes were 96.7% yes. City Council will now vote to accept the contract at two sessions, as is required by law. Chapter president Felipe Cuevas said, “This contract is a big win for our members, who have showed up and sacrificed for their community throughout the pandemic. To win this contract this early in the process is a testament to the hard work our members have done at the bargaining table, in their worksites, and in the community, helping elect pro-worker candidates to City Council.”
