Inglewood City Workers Approve a New Contract

Contract-Victory-Image-2013_400.jpgSEIU 721 Inglewood city members have a new contract. Over 89 percent of voters approved the one-year contract with city management.
The new agreement holds the line on wages, health and retirement benefits, and furloughs.
In addition, the contract contains an important no-layoff clause and new language mandating binding arbitration for major disciplinary actions. It also creates a Joint Labor Management Sub-Committee to study and make recommendations on possible cost savings and revenue sources, and on unfunded liability costs.
“I was proud to be a member of the bargaining team. We were transparent and thorough during negotiations. We stood firm and successfully rejected more cuts, while winning improvements. These are tough economic times, but this contract shows that SEIU 721 is a union on the move.”
