Bargaining Team Endorses a NO Vote!
Riverside County management issued a press release late Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 15, 2011, announcing an impasse in negotiations with SEIU 721 along with their intention to impose terms and conditions of employment on all SEIU represented employees. SEIU 721 will take all necessary legal actions to protect members from this improper imposition, while the bargaining team continues to demand the county return to the bargaining table to negotiate in good faith to obtain a fair contract.
Do not believe the propaganda being distributed by Employee Relations regarding their offer. It is imperative that members come to the membership meeting on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011, at the Moreno Valley Conference Center to get the real facts directly from your elected bargaining team. Everyone will have an opportunity to review the County’s LBFO along with your team’s last proposal and cast a vote authorizing your bargaining team’s next actions. All authorization votes need to be returned to an SEIU office by noon on Monday, Nov. 21, 2011 to be valid.
This may be the most important vote of your life as the outcome will not only affect you, but all future generations of public service workers.
