To contact committee members, email 2019.SF.MTA.Service.Critical.Election.Committee@seiu1021.org.
REQUIREMENTS OF AN SEIU 1021 BARGAINING TEAM MEMBER
- Must be a member of SEIU 1021.
- Must be willing and able to put in the time. Most meetings are during the day where you are released from work duties and paid by the City as a scheduled workday. Often the meetings go into the evening and are sometimes on weekends. You don’t lose pay but you also do not get overtime and sometimes work more than eight hours in a day. If you are sick or unable to attend you must call as soon as possible to be able to have an “alternate” replace you or your Chapter goes unrepresented.
- Must be willing to learn new things.
- Must represent all members not just their Chapter or classification.
- Must be committed to sharing information with coworkers and work collaboratively with the Contract Action Team (CAT). This involves updates, meetings and listening as well as talking.

- Have a sense of humor, but not at others’ expense
- Be a good communicator
- Be willing to assess risks and outcomes

Our contract with the San Francisco MTA expires on June 30, 2019. Our first deadline is to complete Bargaining Team elections by October 12, 2018 so we have ample time for member surveys, training, research, writing proposals and negotiations.
