Bargaining Update: Team Calls for Participation in Vigil and Authorization Vote

On Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2011, Riverside county management delivered their Last, Best, and Final Offer (LBFO) to the SEIU 721 bargaining team. This proposal is a repeat of what was on the table months ago with the county wanting members to shoulder the economic burden of balancing the county’s budget through cuts that will hurt families and the community.

  1. I am confused by the Lack of Information and Secrecy at SEIU, especially when we PAY for REPRESENTATION.

    How is it possible for the COUNTY’s HR to release their LAST, BEST and FINAL OFFER on Nov 16th, and NOT POSSIBLE for SEIU to share this same information until Nov 17th? The LBFO is dated Nov 7th.

    I could never imagine Private Attorney withholding information from their Client.
