Santa Ana Part-Time Workers Become Newest SEIU 721 Members

Santa_Ana_vote_500px.jpgNearly 400 part-time employees for the City of Santa Ana voted overwhelmingly to become members of SEIU 721. While full-time City of Santa Ana workers were already members of SEIU 721, complicated contract language prevented part-time workers from fully participating in the bargaining unit. That language was changed last year, thanks to the hard work of the Santa Ana bargaining team.
