No contract, no peace! Let's keep the pressure on!

Wow–we did that! SEIU 1021 San Francisco City and County members turned out in force January 17 at City Hall and again last Friday, February 16, at SF General Hospital. We were over 500 members strong Friday–and DPH heard us loud and clear.

We were united and our message was powerful: To provide the quality public services SF residents and visitors need, the City MUST fill its vacant positions and STOP wasteful contracting out.

Takeaways are still on the table. That means we have to keep the pressure on.

Amidst the City’s rejection of their latest demands to stop wasteful contracting out, city workers came together to say: “We don’t want to go on strike, but all options are on the table.”

Last Friday, February 16, over 500 San Francisco city workers represented by SEIU 1021, IFPTE Local 21, and other unions rallied outside of San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center to shed light on the dangerous impacts of understaffing. In bargaining with unions, the City administration has recently rejected demands to prevent wasteful spending on contracting out.
